Behind many of Queensland’s hardworking volunteers is a dedicated group of people and agencies who recruit, coordinate, train and support them.
Today is International Volunteer Managers Day, recognising these passionate Queenslanders who enable the state’s volunteers to be successful.
This year, the theme for International Volunteer Managers Day is ‘Time for Change’, exploring the changes needed to ensure volunteer managers remain relevant and powerful into the future.
CEO of Volunteering Queensland Mara Basanovic says volunteering would not occur without the skill and expertise of volunteer managers and their dedication to lead with passion, knowledge and commitment.
“On International Volunteer Managers Day we acknowledge and thank the thousands of volunteer managers for enhancing the spirit of volunteerism through their drive to build stronger, connected communities through volunteering.”
Volunteering Queensland represents the interests of over 714,000 Queensland volunteers.
