Sydney will host the National Volunteering Conference later this month on 20-22 June. The Conference is for anyone who works in the volunteering sector, no matter what level or how big the organisation. I have no doubt, that there will be something in the packed program for you. The fantastic line up of speakers are covering topics such as the future of volunteering; partnerships; volunteer support services workshop; emergency management; volunteer rights and leadership – change management. So if you haven’t looked and booked, then I urge you too as time is running out.
