Plans are coming together nicely for the AVM Conference in 2016. We’ve already lined up some exciting keynote speakers and workshop sessions.
Amongst our keynote speakers will be:
- Sir Stephen Bubb, Chief Executive of the Association of Chief Executives of Voluntary Organisations – http://www.acevo.org.uk. Sir Stephen received a knighthood in 2011 for his services to the voluntary sector.
- Julie Bentley, Chief Executive of Girlguiding. In April 2014, Julia was named as one of Britain’s most influential women in the BBC Woman’s Hour power list 2014
Workshops will include:
- Volunteers and the Law delivered by Mark Restall author of the Volunteering England publication Volunteers and the Law.
- A look at some new research conducted by the National Trust and De Montfort University on the differences between managing paid staff and volunteers
So keep the date free and watch out for more news on the conference in the coming months.
The venue will be the same as last year, the Royal National Hotel, London, close to Euston and Kings Cross stations.
Looking forward to seeing you there.
