It is an opportunity to network and learn with other volunteer engagers!

Proudly presented by VMPC (Volunteer Management Professionals of Canada), Better Impact, and AL!VE (Association of Leaders in Volunteer Engagement), the 2023 Volunteer Management Hybrid Conference is an event that brings together experts in the field of volunteer management.

Our hybrid format ensures that both in-person and virtual attendees will have equal access to the wealth of knowledge and expertise on offer. Whether you join us on-site or connect remotely, you'll have the chance to network with industry leaders, exchange experiences with peers, and forge meaningful connections that will strengthen your professional journey.

(Please note we are closing registration on October 15th)

What is this year's topic?

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 leverages technology in a human world?

Under the theme of "Leveraging Technology in a Human World: Inclusively, Responsibly, Creatively," the conference will focus on learning about technology and how to use it in our programs. The world of volunteering is rapidly evolving, and the next generation of volunteers is sure to bring changes. As we anticipate this transformative future, our mission is to equip leaders of volunteers with the knowledge and tools to navigate the dynamic intersection of technology and humanity.

How does the format work?

The conference will consist of four 20-minute presentations, local discussion among us in person, 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.

Who should attend?:

Volunteer managers, volunteer coordinators, and those who supervise volunteers.
