The Evolution of International Volunteer Managers Day

The Evolution of International Volunteer Managers Day

On November 5, 2014, for the 15th consecutive year, volunteer management professionals around the world will celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMDay). This global event acknowledges the people who lead volunteers, salutes them for their essential role in creating dynamic volunteer opportunities, and works to raise the profile of the volunteer management profession. While still evolving, IVMDay is growing in visibility, with more and more celebrations taking place in many countries.

But just how did it all begin? What mechanisms have kept the show rolling for 15 years? And just what might the future hold?

Join e-Volunteerism's Andy Fryar and members of the International Volunteer Managers Day Committee as they present and review the evolution of this important annual event.

I applaud your fortitude and all of those that have assisted in this journey. Our company has 16 offices and each office is hosting a celebration. Our Volunteers are part of our "Homestead Family" and the backbone of our corporate staff as well as ALL the hours they donate to visit with our patients to offer emotional support. We hold our Volunteer Managers in very HIGH REGARD. They definitely lead with passion, wisdom and imagination.

Nice to be reminded where it all came from Andy - but 5th November remains Guy Fawkes day here in the UK, I think that fireworks add to the celebratory feel of IVMA Day!
