June L&D Event
AVM’s new Learning & Development Officer, Greville Southgate, has joined AVM from the Heritage Arts sector and has a background in creating and developing successful training events. His first event in the new role will be Embracing Digital Communication for Volunteer Management, on 29 June 2017 at VAI in Islington, 1:30 – 5 pm.
This event will be a great opportunity to learn about some of the digital options that are currently being used to communicate with volunteers. Suitable for both large and small organisations, we will be assessing a range of tools that can help engage and support volunteers. Attendees will meet colleagues from across the UK who may be facing similar challenges, and the chance to discuss and compare experiences is a vital component of all AVM activities. AVM Directors and the L&D Officer will be on hand to answer any general enquiries that you may have, as well as digital experts for more specific questions.
We will start by examining how non-profit organisations can benefit from embracing some of the digital tools on offer, as well as recognising some potential risks and some of the less obvious costs.
We will hear presentations from Rebecca Harper, Guide Dogs UK and Jo Keller, RNIB. These charities have been utilising both small-scale and large-scale digital systems to communicate and engage with volunteers and volunteer managers. They will tell us about their reasoning, their aims and finally the results of opting for the systems they use.
There will be an open-space discussion where delegates consider questions arising from the presentations, and can share their own expectations and experiences with similar tools or situations.
Finally, we will hear from A.S. Maini, Volunteer Centre Camden, who will provide an overview of some of the most interesting and cost-effective tools currently available for non-profits. This will include both free and paid-for systems, and assess the salient features of each.
