Tell me more about the conference!

The IMPACT Conference is historically the largest annual conference focused on the civic engagement of college students in community service, service-learning, community-based research, advocacy and other forms of social action. Building on the rich 30-year tradition of the COOL Conference and the Idealist Campus Conference, IMPACT is the one time during the year when students, administrators, faculty, AmeriCorps members and VISTAs, and nonprofit professionals gather together to learn and share effective practices, improve personal skills and organizational strategies, discover opportunities and resources, exchange stories, be inspired and challenged to sustain our efforts.

How can I play a role?

Join the National Planning Committee by applying to be a chair or member of a subcommittee! Subcommittees are the heart of the planning of the conference, and subcommittee members pull a lot of the planning weight. We are looking for members of many different subcommittees, each with different levels of involvement and commitment. Take a look at the list to get a sense of what’s available in leading up to the 2016 conference next February!
