This is an edited re-post of the notification that first went on this blog on 18th February
Our next Volunteer Managers’ Forum meeting will take place on Wednesday 18th March 2009.
We had originally planned that this forum would cover “Legal Update and Personal Safety”. However, as our Conference on Working With Ex-Offenders takes place exactly one week before this forum meeting, we have now decided to change the emphasis slightly and to follow-up on some of the issues from our recent excellent session on Attracting and Recruiting Volunteers.
Therefore, this session will now have these three themes:
Personal Safety for our Volunteers
We will be joined by a representative from Derbyshire Police
How to keep volunteers enthusiastic and motivated
Please come prepared to share the things that you do to keep your volunteers happy, the ways that you celebrate their achievements and recognise their contribution to the work of your organisation.
Volunteers Week 2009
Planning has started for this annual celebration of our volunteers.
Volunteer Managers Forum Venue:
