The world of volunteering is constantly evolving and Volunteering NZ wants to make sure you are ready to meet this challenge.

The 2021 Pivot Conference date was moved from October 2021 to 13-14 March 2022, but has had to be cancelled due to the ongoing effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. Read more.

Our 2020 Pivot Volunteer Conference was held on Wednesday 21 October as a fully online event. The theme “Linking vision to action” challenged leaders and managers of volunteers to translate new ideas shared at Pivot into action within their organisation and practice.


Through Pivot, attendees are empowered to meaningfully lead, advocate for, and develop volunteers and volunteerism in Aotearoa New Zealand. Leaders and managers of volunteers will be inspired by a range of speakers who are experts in their fields. Pivot is a chance to connect with peers, and to share and learn together. With a range of International and New Zealand practitioners and thought leaders, participants will leave inspired and invigorated with skills and ideas.
