Volunteer Managers Forum
The Volunteer Managers Forum is open to any of our member organisations. It is an informal group which allows Volunteer Managers/Coordinators, whether paid or unpaid, to come together to share experiences and skills, whilst also offering some ongoing learning opportunities. Each meeting has a key topic of discussion and usually a guest speaker.
Examples of recent meeting topics:
- Employer Supported Volunteering
- Quality Standards in Volunteering
- Involving Young Volunteers
- Developing a Volunteering Charter for Midlothian
There is always the opportunity at the meeting for informal support and information exchange.
“I always come away from the group feeling encouraged that we’re going in the right direction with some great ideas (borrowed) from everyone else about how we can develop and changes we can make.” Forum member
Meetings are held quarterly on a Wednesday morning.
