Let’s recognise and celebrate the contribution of volunteer managers!
We often recognise the contribution of volunteers in our communities both locally and globally. Volunteers are involved in just about every aspect of service delivery in all walks of life.
However, volunteering does not succeed in a vacuum.
Behind these volunteers lies an equally dedicated group of individuals and agencies who are responsible for the coordination, support, training, administration and recruitment of the world’s volunteers – skilled professionals who are adept at taking singular passion and turning it into effective action.
That is why we celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMDay) every year on 5 November.
It is important to let those professionals know that the spirit of volunteerism is enhanced and enabled by them – and to thank them.
We urge you to mark your calendar and, whether you are an administrator, a volunteer, a community leader or someone who receives the benefit of volunteer help, to make sure the people who act as leaders and catalysts get the recognition they deserve!
This year’s theme is ‘Change the Tune.‘
This theme reflects the need to think differently about how volunteer leadership is positioned and change the dialogue.
