Join the IVMDay 2019 campaign “Change the tune”

10 October 2019

International Volunteer Managers Day happens every year on 5th November and was developed in order to bring recognition to individual Managers of Volunteers and their roles in the mobilisation and support of the world’s volunteers.

Change -the -TuneThis year’s theme is “Change the Tune”. This theme reflects the frustration experienced in many volunteer management circles, where we continue to have the same struggles and discussions year after year. This year’s theme is a chance for us to think differently about how volunteer leadership is positioned – in the hope that we can change the dialogue.

So, how can you get involved? Simple:

  1. Download a ‘pledge sign’ and write down a simple action that you, or a group you are affiliated with will commit to undertake on behalf of volunteer management. Pledge forms + more available here.

  2. Post your completed form (along with a picture of you if you’d like) on twitter using the hashtag #IVMDay19 and tag @IVMDay and us @VolScotland and we will retweet your pic.

  3. Share this campaign with other leaders of volunteers as well as any, networks, key people, volunteer centres and VM Associations that you know, so that we can help make this go just a little bit ‘viral’.
