At this month's MoVERS (Managers of Volunteers - Education, Resources, Sharing) event ...
International Volunteer Managers Day is on November 5th, and this year the theme is "Many backgrounds ~ One profession ~ Stronger together". This theme conveys a strength the volunteer leadership sector possesses that we don't draw on nearly enough....the huge and diverse range of backgrounds that volunteering leaders come from.
One one hand, we come from a wide range of professional backgrounds. One the other hand, we are also made up people from all walks of life and different cultural backgrounds.
This diversity of backgrounds should allow us to think differently. We can find solutions together when we come at issues from different perspectives. As we all have different skill sets, we should be able to collectively collaborate and use these more productively.
So let's have a morning tea together, catch up, and see how everyone is doing in their roles and maybe do a wee bit of planning for the next 12 months!.
This networking event will take place in person and is open to all who are part of the leadership and coordination of volunteers.
Morning tea will be provided.
Event will be held at Seymour Square between 10:00 am - 11:30 am. (In case of rain, event will take place in the Meeting Room at the Community Centre, 25 Alfred Street)
Open until Monday 7 November 2022 at 3:00pm
