Will you be a voice for change with AVM?

“We all have a story to share, we’re all still learning, we can support each other.”

As AVM strives to connect leaders of volunteering to make change happen together, we know we are not alone. You are with us.

That’s why we’ve developed a new tool with members, which gives you the opportunity to be a key part of our learning community. Before tickets go on sale, you can share an outline of your session idea by using one of the forms linked to below.

By sharing your learning at one of our events you’ll benefit many good causes. You’ll also raise the profile of your work and your organisation’s with over 500 members who represent more than 200 volunteer-involving employers.

*By providing your information to us you consent to our collection and use of personal information based on this legitimate interest: we retain the information you’ve submitted for the sole purpose of contacting you about the date tickets will go on sale.
