The State Volunteers Congress was held at the National Wine Centre of Australia on the 6th December, 2010 focusing on the theme of marketing volunteering through social media.  More than 450 attended the congress, which was opened by the Honourable Grace Portelosi, the Minister for Volunteers. The Master of Ceremonies for the day was Nikki Marcel from Radio Adelaide with presentations by Jim Robinson, Principal & Creative Director JAM Adelaide and Michelle Prak, Hughes Public Relations, as well as panel discussions, and presentations by Alison Wotherspoon (Flinders University) and Dr Denise Wood (UniSA), as well as UniSA students, Joyce, Patrick and Joel, who did a wonderful job showcasing work they completed through the Sustainable Online Community Engagement program in front of more than 450 congress delegates.
