Exploring digital technology for volunteer management: By embracing digital solutions we can engage more effectively with volunteers.
Share and compare your own experience with some innovative examples from the charity sector.

Sponsored by Better Impact.

Exploring Digital Technology for volunteer management is the second in our series of Embracing Digital events. Last time we looked at communicating with various email systems. This time, in response to members’ feedback, we will be looking at a broader range of digital tools, with some examples from organisations that are using them. From data management systems to e-learning and webinars, this event aims to cover the most significant areas in volunteer management that can benefit from digital technology.

We will hear from a range of presenters who provide, advocate and use a variety of digital solutions for volunteer management challenges.
