With an impressive line-up of international and Australian speakers, the Conference program will have an emphasis on putting ideas into action. It will encourage audience participation utilising a variety of contemporary presentation formats that involve and engage Conference participants.
With the goal to challenge, inspire and empower, the Conference program will explore the theme The Power of Association, and three very important sub-themes:
- Leadership and Stewardship of Volunteering
- Sector Collaboration
- Valuing and Repositioning Volunteering
Leadership and Stewardship of Volunteering will explore the role of leaders in building a resilient, sustainable and productive volunteer workforce and the role of leaders as the stewards of volunteering, ensuring volunteering remains true to the spirit and intent.
Sector Collaboration will explore the factors that contribute to and support successful collaboration, and showcase examples of collaborations that advance volunteering.
Valuing and Repositioning Volunteering will explore why volunteers and volunteering are not valued and what we can do about it as well as how volunteering can be repositioned to reflect its true value and contribution.
