The Dunedin Leaders of Volunteers Network is a forum for people who work with volunteers to share ideas and learn from each other about current local best practices in volunteer management while networking at the same time. This is an informal peer sharing group that encourages attendees to share their own ideas and learn from each other about current local best practices in volunteer management while networking at the same time. This is an informal peer sharing group that encourages attendees to share their own ideas, inspiration and insights arounf the practical issues of effectively engaging volunteers.
Who can come?
These forums are open to all paid or volunteer members of community organisations who are responsible for leading, managing or coordinating volunteers. Your organisation does not need to be a member of Volunteering Otago for you to attend.
People are welcome to attend as many or as few meetings as they would like to attend during the year. All specific information shared at each meeting is confidential, and the general learning outcomes of each meeting are typed up and shared publicly as a local resource for best practice in volunteer management.
Where are they held?
The 2016 meetings are held once a month on either a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between 12:30pm and 1:30pm. All meetings will be held at Alexandra MacMillan Room, Dunedin Community House, 301 Moray Place, Dunedin.
Hourly metered parking is somewhat available on the street at $3 per hour. There is also a public Wilsons Carpark next to Farmers that costs $3 per hour. (Please do not park in Community House car park as these parks are monitored by Wilsons and unauthorised cars parked will be issued a ticket).
What do you talk about?
There is usually a different discussion topic each month, and the topics are determined by the needs of the group. Some months there is no specific topic and the floor is open for people to network. Minutes are taken from each meeting and best practices and new ideas are shared with our wider network.
