Awarding Excellence to Managers of Volunteers» 30/09/2011, Posted by Site Admin
Nominations are now open for the 2011 Volunteer Manager Award of Excellence.
This is awarded by the Australasian Association of Volunteer Administrators (AAVA) annually to recognise a manager of volunteers for their outstanding contribution to the profession of volunteer management.
The role of those who manage or co-ordinate volunteers often sits behind the scenes, largely unrecognised. The award is a tremendous opportunity to recognise these people. No matter whether the volunteer manager has been on the front line putting their lives at risk for the sake of their community or working in the community for sporting groups, the arts, local government, hospitals, environmental or community welfare organisations and the like, these people are ensuring the true value of volunteer contributions are felt.
We encourage you to nominate your staff or colleagues that manage or coordinate volunteers. Think about those managers of volunteers who do an outstanding job to inspire, encourage and lead volunteers to be the best that they can be and to make a real difference in their communities and nominate them for this award. Let's publicly recognise and celebrate the fantastic job these people do!
Nominations close on Monday 17 October 2011.
A nomination form is attached.
