IVMDay 2022 – Theme Announcement

2022 Theme

“Many Backgrounds – One Profession – Stronger Together”

This theme conveys a strength the volunteer leadership sector possesses that we don’t draw on enough… the huge and diverse range of backgrounds that volunteering leaders come from.

On one hand – we come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. We are also made up of people from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.

We believe that this diversity of backgrounds should allow us to think differently, we can find solutions together when we come at issues from different perspectives. As we all have different skill sets we should be able to collectively collaborate and use more these more productively.

IVMDay 2021 – Theme Announcement

Recent times have allowed us the space to consider (and re-consider) many aspects of the important work we undertake as Volunteer Managers.

To that end, the Global IVMDay Coordinating Committee are proud to announce that the theme of IVMDay 2021 will be:

“What Is Excellence? – Pushing us beyond the ordinary”

We believe it is time to reflect upon what ‘excellence’ really means for our profession, and work towards creating some common language around this important topic.

Over the coming months we will look to provide some stimulating debate on many different aspects of just what does constitute ‘excellence in volunteer engagement’.

For example, what does excellence look like in:

  • Volunteer leadership?
  • Volunteer management certifications and learning?
  • Diversity and equity?
  • Managing up?
  • Meaningful engagement?
  • Embracing technology and systems?

Now is the time to start planning how you might celebrate IVMDay 2021 in your organisation or region – and how you might use this theme to create some meaningful outcomes from the day.

What’s Next?

Join our IVMDay 2020 campaign!

This year’s theme will simply be “What’s Next?”. The Covid-19 pandemic has created challenges on many levels, and those of us leading volunteer effort have found ourselves in positions we never imagined. It’s our hope that over the lead up to IVMDay 2020, we will continue to have time to reflect on the lessons, challenges and most importantly opportunities that confront us – and we hope that IVMDay 2020 will offer a focal point for volunteering leaders, the world over, to collaborate and consolidate the way forward.
