Campaigns

International Volunteer Managers Day 2018

2018 Theme: “Time for Change”. We hope that this timely theme will allow us to explore the changes needed in our great profession, to ensure it remains relevant and powerful into the future.

IVMD is a chance to recognise and celebrate the vital work managers of volunteers provide to volunteers and volunteer-involving organisations through effective volunteer strategy, culture, communication and resources. Without this work, volunteers’ time, talents and efforts would be wasted.

When: 5 November 2018
