The future state of volunteering
Changing the ways we think about volunteers
Volunteering is evolving and will continue to do so into the future. How do we ensure we are responding to our society’s needs while retaining the essence of what it is that enables volunteers to make a different? How do we hang on to the past without jeopardising the future? and What responsibility do we have for shaping the future state of volunteering in Australia and more globally? . Dynamic, reflexive and responsive volunteering and volunteer involving organisations are what we need to ensure that volunteers are able to continue to make a contribution to our ever-changing society. How can we be ready to meet this challenge?

To pay or not to pay – that is the #1 question
Every year Justice’s Connect’s Not-for-profit law team receives thousands of legal enquiries from volunteer managers, volunteers and board and committee members all across the country.
Justice Connect lawyer, Amy Williams will present the top three volunteering legal issues raised in 2018 – 2019: to pay or not to pay volunteers, managing recruitment risk and workplace behaviour.
Amy will guide you through the current state of the law, what makes these issues tricky and how you can protect yourselves for the future.

Volunteers – the true leaders in our community.
Volunteering is at the centre of Australia’s national identity, with 5.8 million Australians engaging in volunteering, making an estimated annual economic and social contribution of $290 billion. Volunteering works its way into every pocket of our community. It connects people to one another and gives them a way to make a positive difference to the world around them.
Volunteering may be hiding in plain sight, but the volunteer workforce performs some of the toughest and most important jobs in our community. In a world that is fraught with problems and challenges, volunteering is part of the solution.
This session repositions volunteers as the true leaders in our community at the local, national and global level. It examines some of the myths around volunteering and volunteer management suggests ways that we all build the community awareness of value and power of volunteering.
