Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference

October 18 - 19, 2022

This is the volunteer management conference presented by VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada), Better Impact, and AL!VE (Association of Leader's In Volunteer Engagement).  Now in its eighth year, this year's topic will focus on the impact of  data.  Everyone is being expected to take advantage of data, no matter what their size, mission, or budget. Decision makers want organizations to use data to show their value beyond what the financials show. But it’s more than that.  It’s also knowing what data is important and telling the story behind the data that really matters.

With limited resources, how do agencies partnering with volunteers choose an approach that combines the right mix of data and tools to provide insight relevant to your organization? And where is it going to come from?  

This year's Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference will focus on equipping leaders of volunteers with skills to determine what data is useful and how to tell impactful stories using different tools and technologies.

We are pleased to announce our speakers for this year's Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference:

  • Veronica Deally - Why Volunteers Deserve Their Own Annual Report
  • Adam Shilling – What’s In It For Them?” Persuading Leaders and Decisions Makers
  • Maura Fitzpatrick – Positioning Yourself as the Expert and Communicating with Impact and Confidence
  • Tony Goodrow – The Relative Impact Model for Measuring the ROI of Volunteer Engagement

Our current streaming event will consist of four 20 minute presentations, local discussion in smaller groups, followed by a moderated discussion with the other presenters (think Ted talk meets late night tv), including responding to questions from the audience.

The broadcast will be streamed live in the United States and Canada, with the likelihood of an audience of 1000 or more.  In order to participate, you will need an internet connection strong enough to handle audio/video streaming and adequate computer or external speakers.

You can learn more about the conference by visiting the main conference website.
