Becoming a member of AVM

Join AVM and be part of a growing network of over 400 members. Our aim is to provide learning and development on volunteer management, to act as a voice for those who work with volunteers and to share best practice amongst everyone who engages volunteers.

You might directly manage or coordinate volunteers yourself. You might be paid or do this in a voluntary capacity. You might lead or administer a volunteering programme. Equally you may work with and engage volunteers in the private, public or voluntary sector.
