“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.
Volunteer Management. One Job. Many Hats.
Aside from being a theme that we hope many people can have some fun with, it also reflects the multi-dimensional skill base that VM’s have to develop to be truly effective in their roles.
Further, it speaks a lot about how volunteer leadership is such a critical part of so many spheres of society.
