UVMRC’s General Membership Meeting/Training – Upper Valley MRC
Join the Upper Valley MRC Unit at their General Meeting via virtual platform to meet the volunteers, view a training presentation, and work on projects for the upcoming year. Please email Heather.Rigney@vermont.gov for zoom link or call-in information.
We will have an exciting webinar by Cath Burns, PhD, talking about compassion fatigue during COVID response. Many of you have been on the frontlines during work and as volunteers, and it is stressful to manage your own anxieties as well as those of others, as well as to see the toll of the virus on our everyday lives. We will also do our regular review of activities going on in both states so you can see all of the amazing work our volunteers are involved in!
