Sean Cobley has been appointed as the new chair of the Association of Volunteer Managers. Sean takes over from John Ramsey who led on developing the Association since its inception.
Sean, a founding member of AVM, is also Head Office Volunteer Manager at Breakthrough Breast Cancer. He said:
“I very much hope that I can do justice to the great legacy that John has left. Volunteer management is entering an exciting and formative stage of its development. With the support of our members I hope that I can help develop AVM further to meet the challenges our profession faces.”
John Ramsey, who will be stepping down from the board in September said:
“Sean is the ideal person, not just to take AVM to the next level of its development but to really make the breakthrough in convincing organisations that investing in volunteer management is the difference in ensuring effective sustainable volunteering”
