Be the Voice – Announcement of 2017 theme

Not long until we celebrate IVMDay for another year and to that end, we are thrilled to announce the theme for IVMDay 2017!

“Be The Voice!”

The 2017 theme seeks to recognise that Volunteer Managers need to be so much more than just accomplished leaders of people – we need to be change agents and advocates for our volunteers and for volunteering.

We need to make a difference.
We need to agitate.
We need to advocate.

As we look at global trends, politics and priorities, the need for effective volunteer engagement has never been more important – and while it’s important to celebrate our great profession on IVMDay, we also want to encourage all volunteer leaders to find ways to fight for great volunteering environments, advocate for adequate resources and become effective activists for the profession of volunteer leadership.

We hope you’ll join us!
