2023 Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference

October 17 - 18, 2023

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 ninth year, this year's topic is Leveraging Technology in a Human World: Inclusively, Responsibly, Creatively.

The generation of volunteers in the not too distant future will be very different compared to volunteers now.  How can we prepare our policies, programs and recruitment in an inclusive, responsible, and creative way that looks to leverage technology in a human world?

This year's Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference will focus on equipping leaders of volunteers with skills to determine how we can use technology to best serve our very human needs in the volunteer management sector. 

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

  • Beth Kanter
  • Tony Goodrow
  • Stephan Dobri

And our Host/Moderator for this year's Hybrid Conference is Rob Jackson. 

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.
