Message from the President:
See You in Chicago!
Alexander M. Wyglinski, President

At the end of August 2018, three major international VTS events will converge in Chicago, Illinois, USA, that will be of interest to all members of our community.

The co-location of multiple events at a single venue is a first for VTS. We hope that this action will encourage higher attendance for all events, and strengthen our volunteer community through learning from each other's achievements and best practices, sharing our experiences, and enjoying the wonderful, vibrant culture of Chicago!  Read More...
