International Volunteer Managers Day
International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMD) is celebrated around the world on 5 November each year.
The 2021 theme is “What Is Excellence? – Pushing us beyond the ordinary” - giving us the opportunity to reflect upon what ‘excellence’ really means for our profession, and work towards creating some common language around this important topic.
Every day across Western Australia thousands of paid and unpaid volunteer managers support our State’s 600,000+ 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.
