joint event logsWe are pleased to invite you to a workshop on volunteering research and practice, co-hosted by the Voluntary Sector Studies Network, Association of Volunteer Managers and the Network of National Volunteer Involving Agencies and supported by NCVO, on the 7th June 2018, 10:30-15:30, London.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together volunteer managers and researchers to strengthen collaborative working. We will share thoughts on: the state of the existing evidence base for volunteering; how research is used in volunteering management; and priorities for future research. The workshop will include brief presentations from some of the leaders in volunteering research and practice, but the emphasis will be on collaborative working through group discussions.

This is a free event but places are limited to one per organisation, and you must register to attend.

You can see the programme further details and register at Eventbrite.

HI there,

Such a shame that this event is at the end of Volunteers’ Week, when there are so many events on already. Unfortunately it means I will be unable to attend, but please let me know if you reschedule!

Many thanks

Sounds like a productive meeting. Great!

Shortly after I read this article I also read this piece on unlearning – https://sivers.org/unlearning. In essence, it says that what we know already may not be what we need to know now, or in the future. I thought about this in the context of the points made above that we know a lot about volunteering already. Does what we know still hold true today? Is it what we need to know?

I don’t have the answers but it made me pause to reflect so thought I would share it with you all.
