Get Involved with District VII
CASE District VII offers an abundance of opportunities for networking, career growth, and education—from attending workshops to competing in awards programs to participating in the annual district conference.
Those who gain the most from CASE, however, are the volunteers. From planning a workshop to presenting at the conference to being a judge for an awards competition, volunteering can give you prime opportunities to develop your advancement career, expand your professional network, and grow personally.
The District VII Conference offers a multitude of educational sessions across the advancement profession. Planning and carrying out the conference requires an army of volunteers who plan session topics, recruit speakers, arrange logistical details, create conference marketing materials, help with registration, host individual sessions, conduct roundtable discussions, and serve as speakers.

Each year the district sponsors an awards program to recognize quality advancement work and to highlight the best practices of the profession. The success of the awards program depends on volunteer judges and judging coordinators. Learn more.
The CASE District VII Cabinet tends to the business of the district. Calls for nominations are made annually. Cabinet members are expected to serve on one of the committees: Governance, Professional Development, and Outreach. In addition, the cabinet oversees the biennial District VII Conference.
The work of the district includes many other efforts as well. If you would like to volunteer in a way not listed above—or if you want to volunteer but don't care what you do—please contact district chair Lori Redfearn.
