The Voice of Volunteering
August 2016

CEO's Message

Gemma Rygate

It has been another busy month at The Centre for Volunteering. Most recently we hosted a one day workshop and evening reception with Chris Jarvis & Angela Parker, co-founders of Realized Worth. It was great to have them share their knowledge about corporate volunteering with our audience of organisations and corporations. For more about the event, visit our website.

These professional development sessions are one of the many services The Centre provides for our members. We want to continue to provide relevant services for our members and in mid-September, we will send out a survey to understand what matters to you.  We hope you can take the time to complete the survey. 

As we start a new month, you should be aware of the release of seventh annual Australian Institute of Company Directors’ (AICD) seventh annual NFP Governance and Performance Study. It highlights the challenges and opportunities the not-for-profit sector is currently facing. You can download the full report from the AICD site today.

On Tuesday, 30 August the regional ceremonies for 10th Annual NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards commenced. We congratulate the nominees who have been recognised for their work and the winners announced thus far. For the latest updates, visit our Volunteer Awards News hub or follows us on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIN.
