2016 Business Track Resources

Welcome to the 2016 Conference on Volunteering and Service Business Track Resource Website, where you can access featured content, presentations and other highlights from our time together in Detroit.

This year’s Business Track was both inspirational and transformative, as passionate change-makers shared their stories of triumph and change as they continue to create the future in the Comeback City. We also celebrated and looked to the future as we recognized the 2016 Civic 50—the most community-minded companies in America that are going beyond checkbook philanthropy to turn good intentions into sound business practices.

To access content shared in this year’s Business Track, explore the links below. For full conference coverage, visit Points of Light’s blog and watch and share highlights on Points of Light’s YouTube channel. We thank Target for sponsoring this year’s Business Track.
