Today AVM is marking International Volunteer Managers’ Day with an organisational pledge dedicated to the community of UK leaders of volunteers.
Our pledge: We pledge to empower, enable and amplify the voice of all managers of volunteers across the UK.
Every year 5 November marks International Volunteer Managers’ Day, an opportunity to talk about and thank those who work to make volunteering happen across charities and communities, in ground-level sport, in the public sector, and in all other settings where volunteers contribute their time and talents.
The 2017 theme is Be The Voice, with a call to action to make a pledge, either individually or as an organisation.
AVM chair Ruth Leonard said: “We think it’s important to lead the pledges by affirming our commitment to volunteer managers on this very special day of the year.”
