The Voice of Volunteering
January 2017

CEO's Message

Gemma Rygate

2017 is in full swing and all of us at The Centre for Volunteering are looking forward to working with you across a range of activities and programs throughout the year.
The details for our first workshops and networking events of the year are highlighted below – kicking off with a short (one hour) webinar with Andrew Pepar aimed at sharpening your focus and steering you towards a more effective work style for the year.

I particularly want to draw your attention to a great opportunity offered in partnership with the Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD). AICD is offering to run a short governance program especially tailored to NFP sector workers and board members. This course will set you up to meet ASIC and ACNC governance standards and anyone working at a senior level or directly with a board will significantly enhance their professional capabilities. This short course will be open to our Members at a greatly reduced rate. We are calling for Expressions of Interest as places are limited to 25 people.

Our Annual Conference on 7 June will focus on valuing volunteering and boosting our sector’s professional voice. US volunteering expert Tobi Johnson will be our keynote speaker: Tobi has 25 years’ experience in the not-for-profit sector and is a renowned thought leader focused on developing and enriching volunteering in communities. A full conference schedule will be released shortly and we will be calling for speakers to submit expressions of interest for pop-up talks and foyer presentations.
Below, there are links to our Professional Development program for the first half of the year - I trust you find a course to suit your professional needs.
