CAHHS Mid-Day Meet-Up

In 2024, CAHHS will host 90-minute monthly virtual networking sessions for California hospital members. Held the second Thursday of the month, these Zoom sessions will provide an opportunity to connect and network with professionals, peers, and other volunteer leaders. Discuss your current challenges, topics of interest, and share resources.

New and seasoned volunteers and paid leaders managing volunteer programs are encouraged to participate.


Thanks to the members who participated in the January 11 virtual networking session. It was a lively discussion; topics included:

  • Volunteer Service Awards
  • Volunteer Badges
  • Hospital Masking Status
  • Recruitment Challenges
  • Volunteer Service Descriptions
  • Staff Engagement

As a result of this session, CAHHS established a SharePoint resource library for hospital volunteer leaders to share contact information, volunteer service descriptions, policies, procedures, vendor resources, social media websites, and any other key volunteer-related content. Members interested in utilizing SharePoint must agree to the notice of access/use at time of registration. 


Thank you to the more than 45 California hospital volunteer leaders who participated in the Feb. 8 networking session. During the session members discussed various recruitment strategies, current vaccination requirements, training resources for chaplains, use of virtual volunteers, and much more. Also revealed was the updated networking sessions name – Mid-Day Meet-Up, A Virtual Gathering for Volunteer Leaders, and an overview of the SharePoint resource library. Members who requested access to SharePoint will receive a separate email with site link. 


Thank you to those who participated in the March 11 Mid-Day Meet-Up.

Participants shared their plans to honor volunteers during National Volunteer Week. There were any creative and practical options shared. A list of celebration plans provided by registered participants is available on the SharePoint Shared Resources Library.

Discussion also included Pet Therapy programs.


The April Mid-Day Meet-Up has been canceled. With National Volunteer Week upon us, April 21-27, we understand many members are taking this time to prepare for their volunteer celebratory events. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused and hope you can join us for the May 9 Mid-Day Meet-Up.
