A group from this year’s Leadership Springfield class is conducting a survey of area professionals to find out what motivates people to volunteer their time to nonprofit organizations and how they prefer to go about doing so. The brief, eight question survey can be accessed on SurveyMonkey.

Leadership Springfield, a program of the Greater Springfield Chamber of Commerce, aims to develop, strengthen and equip local professionals to benefit the Springfield area. The 14-week series, which is held annually, consists of half day programs on a variety of topics that offer exposure to critical issues affecting the Springfield area and the opportunity to gain leadership skills.
