New Jersey Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster and the New Jersey Governor’s Office of Volunteerism are proud to once again be hosting a joint statewide conference on Wednesday, October 19th! The theme for this year’s virtual conference is Inspiring Engagement – from the Ground Up. Last year we brought together over 800 participants, from non-profit, faith-based, for-profit, educational, governmental and National Service organizations, from across New Jersey and beyond. We look forward to learning, networking and sharing best practices together in the fields of community resilience, volunteerism, and much more. We hope to see you there!

He worked as a career public servant under both Democrats and Republicans, having served at USAID, the Pentagon, the State Department, the White House National Security Council, and in Afghanistan as an advisor to Generals Petraeus and Allen.
In the House of Representatives, Congressman Kim is working on an agenda to bring this country together and strengthen its national and economic security.
