Celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day on November 5, 2016

CAHHS Volunteer Services joins the organizers of International Volunteer Managers Day in celebrating the profession of volunteer leadership, especially those who work within the hospitals and health sector.   We celebrate the profession of volunteer leadership because:

  1. Volunteer Managers have the skills and knowledge to help people be part of the solution in meeting community needs. Even in cynical times, they practice the art of the possible.
  2. Volunteer Managers change lives — both the lives of volunteers themselves and of those served by well-led volunteers. It is a life-changing profession. Volunteer managers provide the leadership and direction that allows people to build a good and just society and to mend the social fabric. Without professional leadership, people’s time, talents and efforts could be wasted.
  3. A well-run volunteer program shows the community, including potential donors, that the organization is not afraid of public scrutiny and involvement and endeavors to make the most efficient use of monetary assets.
  4. Well-led volunteers become an advocacy and public relations force for an agency or program — a force no amount of money could buy.
