Webinars are a new benefit for members. There's plenty to talk about between conferences and AMSOV has access to experts throughout our volunteer organizations and our respective orchestras who are happy to share their knowledge and experience.

Out With the Old, In With the New

AMSOV's inaugural webinar was held November 16, 2023.

It offered practical suggestions on how to self-inventory your volunteer organization to ensure practices, policies, projects and marketing approaches are still as relevant as they were 20 years ago.
