Volunteer Management in the Big Society Conference


AVM is delighted to announce that our first ever conference is now fully booked – with still three weeks to go to the event itself. Fantastic.

We are delighted so many volunteer managers wanted to join us for a day discussing and debating the issues around Volunteer Management and the Big Society. Just shows how much we all want to engage with the current debate on this issue and ensure the voice of the volunteer manager is heard within that debate. For those who are attending we look forward to seeing you on the 9th of March.

If you were not able to get a place at the conference apologies and rest assured this will be the first, of what we hope, will be a regular AVM conference – especially now we know there is so much interest out there.

Thanks for your support.


Join the Association of Volunteer Managers for it’s first ever Conference on the 9th March 2011 – 10am to 4pm.

This one day conference will examine the current volunteering landscape for the Third Sector and will seek to answer key questions volunteer managers face such as:

  • What will volunteer management look like in a ‘Big Society’?
  • What impact will/should the Volunteer Rights Enquiry have on volunteer management?
  • What will volunteer managers need to do to adapt to the changing world of volunteering?
  • What will volunteer management look like going forward?

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Rob Jackson, Volunteering England and secretariat for the Volunteer Rights Enquiry.
  • Sean Cobley, Chair of the Association of Volunteer Managers.
  • Rachel Bayley, Director of RSVP.
  • Kate Bowgett, London Museums Hub Volunteer Management Advisor.

Look forward to seeing you at the conference.
