The Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference 2020
‘Managing Risk: Balancing Aversion and Innovation’ is the volunteer management conference presented by AL!VE, Better Impact, and VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada). Now in its sixth year, this year’s topic will explore how balancing aversion and innovation to risk impacts our volunteers, programs and agencies, now and in the near and far futures. The streaming event consisted of four 20 minute presentations, followed by a moderated discussion with the other presenters (think Ted talk meets late night tv), including responding to questions from the audience.
This unique event was broadcast live on October 20.
The broadcast was streamed live to more than 50 remote locations in the United States and Canada. One of the goals of this event is to provide quality, high-level professional development events in local areas where access and resources may be limited to local associations of volunteer engagement professionals, volunteer centers, or other entities with an interest in professional development for those who engage volunteers.
