Volunteer Managers‘ Forum 29 August
Created: 17/06/2019, Updated: 13/08/2019
When: 09.30am-11.30am (09.15am for tea/coffee and informal networking), Thursday 29 August 2019 Where: New Volunteer House, 16 East Fergus Place, Kirkcaldy, KY1 1XT This event is being organised by Fife Voluntary Action Costs This event is free to attend but to encourage attendance and try and ensure a good turnout to benefit all delegates, we will charge a non-attendance fee of £10.00 per delegate. By submitting a booking for this event you agree to pay this fee for those delegates who have places booked but do not attend.
Cancellations can be received up to 5 working days ahead of the event, thus avoiding non-attendance fees. A cancellation will only be valid if we have confirmed it with you. You can send somebody else in place of a booked delegate without incurring a non-attendance fee.
Our Volunteer Managers' Forums are open to anyone who works in Fife and who is involved in the recruitment and/or management/supervision of volunteers.
Volunteer Management can sometimes be a solitary role within an organisation, and our Forums are a great way to meet other people who are doing a similar role to you and reduce any sense of isolation you may have. There's also the chance to network (usually both formally and informally), catch up with changes happening in the field, discuss issues you may have and ask questions of the guest speaker and FVA staff who will be in attendance. With plenty of free tea/coffee and biscuits too, we think you'll be glad you came!
Our topic for this Forum is Measuring the Impact of Volunteering. And yes, it can be measured, in lots of different ways!
We will be having a guest speaker on this highly valuable and positive subject. If you're already measuring impact; great, we'd love to hear about it and share it with the forum and the wider network of Volunteer Managers in Fife. If you're not already doing it and wonder why you might need or want to, our speaker will help us see the benefits e.g. funding, volunteer retention and more! There will be a short, interactive presentation, followed by opportunities to share with others and learn what might be right for your organisation.
The Scottish Volunteering Forum has produced very easy to read and assimilate material on this topic, so we'll make that and other materials available to everyone who attends.
If you haven't already registered for your place, we urge you to do so now.
