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. Our current streaming event will consist 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 will broadcast live on October 20. You may visit their website.
The broadcast will be streamed live to more than 50 remote locations in the United States and Canada, with the likelihood of an audience of 1000 or more. 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.
