Universally, people recognize the contribution of volunteers to just about every aspect of service delivery in all walks of life. However, volunteering does not succeed in a vacuum. It is important to acknowledge that the spirit of volunteerism is enhanced and enabled by the skilled people who lead them – you! – and to say thank you. That is why we celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day (IMVDay) every year on November 5. Except THIS YEAR in Seattle. We are going to celebrate with Internationally Known Volunteer Management Author and Speaker Andy Fryar on Friday, Nov. 18 at the Brockney Center at South Seattle Community College from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for only $20!
What better way to celebrate than with a special training and a special lunch!
The role of the Volunteer Manager continues to morph and change – and generally become more complex. Yet how often do we take time out to consider these changes and how best to plan for them. This session will allow the time reflect on these changes and to strategize about how we and our organizations must best position ourselves to meet the challenges of engaging a modern day volunteer workforce. Andy Fryar, the National Operations Manager for Better Impact, will walk you through the 18 qualities that he has observed (in more than 30 years in this field), that advanced volunteer managers exhibit. Come prepared to be challenged! Light breakfast and full lunch is included. Price: ONLY $20 for the half day training. Lunch is provided by VANNW in honor of Volunteer Managers Day. Register HERE!
Celebrate with your peers the incredible work you do!
