Happy IVMDay

celebrationDear colleagues,

I wanted to take this opportunity to wish all the members of this group a terrific International Volunteer Manager’s Day for 2016.

IVMDay marks an important opportunity for those of us who lead volunteers to find ways to educate others about the all too often under rated role that we play in mobilizing volunteers and making a very real difference in our communities.

I have been thrilled to see the day gain even greater momentum this year and to see the critical work of Volunteer Managers around the globe gain even greater kudos and recognition. Many celebrations took place a day early this year, due to November 5 falling on a weekend, and the reports filtering in from around the world have been very encouraging

So once again – have a great November 5 and never stop finding ways to educate others about the amazing role that leaders of volunteers play all around the world

Best wishes
