As an official International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMD) supporter, Volunteering Australia is proud to celebrate the profession of volunteer leadership. We encourage you to join us in celebrating the vital role of managers of volunteers for effective volunteering.
Every day across Western Australia thousands of paid and unpaid volunteer managers support our State’s 523,000+ volunteers to deliver much needed services that enhance the lives of those in need and care for animals and the environment. Volunteer Managers lead with passion, wisdom and imagination and provide the leadership and direction that allow volunteers to contribute to the community. Without their professional leadership, people’s time, talents and efforts would be wasted.
