What does the field think about credentialing? In this Keyboard Roundtable, volunteer management colleagues from the UK, USA, New Zealand and Australia provide their personal and widely different perspectives on the value of a professional credential. One expert thinks credentialing can be a good thing, while another believes it is a waste of time. Yet another expert debates whether credentialing is the right thing for volunteer managers as a whole, while another questions if the field could be better at credentialing and what that means.
This special Keyboard Roundtable clearly presents some very personal opinions from people who must weigh the credentialing dilemma in their own career paths. We hope these perspectives challenge e-Volunteerism readers to share their own views and opinions, too.
