Implementing the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement- with Penny York | The Centre For Volunteering | Wednesday, 06. March 2019
Are your standards up to scratch?
The Centre for Volunteering’s workshop: Implementing the 2015 Standards for Volunteer Involvement will help you benchmark your organisation against industry standards.
These Standards were developed in 2015 for use by all volunteer organisations and designed to adapt to the sector’s growing diversity. They are a blueprint for best practice in volunteer management no matter how big or small your organisation is.
Our presenter, Penny York, will review ‘Implementing the National Standards: Guide and Workbook’, by Volunteering Australia and provide you with practical advice for implementation. (A hard copy of the ‘Guide and Workbook’ is included in the workshop price.)
During the workshop, you will be able to share issues, identify strengths, pinpoint areas for improvement, and understand the next steps for implementation.
If you coordinate or lead volunteers, have management or governance responsibility in an organisation that works with volunteers, don’t miss this opportunity to strive for best practice and protect your most valuable resource – volunteers.
Extended half day workshop
Please note that on the day of the workshop registraion opens from 8:45am for a 9:00am sharp start.
