So proud of our very own Gretchen Feinhals and Triste Vasquez-White for representing The Senior Source and AmeriCorps Seniors! Your contributions make a huge impact on our amazing volunteers and the agencies they love serving.

And that's a wrap! Your NSCA Board of Directors just completed our two-day board retreat. We had planned to meet in person in Washington, DC, but COVID forced us to once again meet via Zoom. We had productive sessions to include strategic planning, program committee break-outs, discussions with AmeriCorps Seniors leadership and Voices for National Service, and more! Please continue to reach out to the board with questions, suggestions, and concerns. We're #StrongerTogether!
