On Saturday (August 10, 2013), thirty member nonprofits and other civic groups, along with service-minded people from the Baton Rouge area and beyond, gathered for the first regional Volunteer Fair, sponsored by Volunteer Louisiana and LANO.
Participating organizations met with members of the public, local press and each other for a successful morning of networking and an afternoon featuring volunteer management classes presented by Volunteer Louisiana.
Today The Advocate newspaper printed a story covering the event and highlighting some of the LANO members and volunteer citizens who attended.
