International Volunteer Managers Day - 5th November
International Volunteer Managers Day happens every year on 5th November and was developed in order to bring recognition to individual Managers of Volunteers and their roles in the mobilisation and support of the world’s volunteers.
This year’s theme is “Time for Change”. It is hoped 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.
So, how can you get involved? Simple:
- Download a ‘pledge sign’ and write down a simple action that you, or a group you are affiliated with will commit to undertake on behalf of volunteer management. Pledge forms & more available on the Volunteer Scotland website.
- Post your completed form (along with a picture of you if you’d like) on Twitter using the hashtag #IVMDay18 and tag @IVMDay and @VolScotland.
- Share this campaign with other leaders of volunteers as well as any, networks, key people, volunteer centres and VM Associations that you know!
