International Volunteer Management Guru in Seattle!

andy3When VAN heard that Andy Fryar was going to be in Seattle, we jumped at the chance to have him come lead a half day workshop at our annual celebration of Volunteer Managers.  If you are not familiar with Andy,  you are in for a treat! He is a very entertaining and provocative speaker.  You can attend for the very special low price of $20!  Register HERE for the half day workshop with lunch on Friday, Nov. 18th at the Brockney Center at South Seattle College.  $20 includes a workshop on Advancing Volunteer Management with a very special celebratory lunch to celebrate you – our volunteer managers!

Andy Fryar is the National Operations Manager for Better Impact in Australia and New Zealand and the founder of OzVPM (Australasian Volunteer Program Management). For more than 30 years, he has contributed significantly to the Australian volunteerism community. His achievements include serving as President of VolunteeringAustralia and convening the working party that later evolved into AAMoV – the Australasian Association for Managers of Volunteers.

Andy has helped produce three books on volunteer management and is a co-author of
Volunteer Program Management: an essential guide (3rd edition) – Australia’s premier guidebook to volunteering. He has served on the editorial committee of the Australian Journal of Volunteering and since 2000, has been a founding member of the editorial team for e-volunteerism, an international electronic journal of volunteerism based in Philadelphia.

Andy travels extensively and has conducted volunteer management training and worked with volunteer involving agencies in many countries including the USA, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, India, Singapore and the UK, where between 2004 and 2010 he was a faculty member with the prestigious ‘Institute of Advanced Volunteer Management’. He is also a co-founder of the Australasian Retreat for Advanced Volunteer Management that was held annually between 2005 and 2012.

Since 2008, Andy has volunteered his time as Chairperson of the global committee overseeing the promotion of International Volunteer Manager’s Day, celebrated on November 5 each year. (VAN is celebrating a little late on Nov. 18th to take advantage of Andy being here.)

We hope to see you there!
