  • I would like to welcome you to the AVM Conference 2013. No matter who you are, where you are from or how you are feeling I am sure you will find something of interest as you participate in the day. This conference is entitled Finding Your Voice and we encourage you to take part during the day. Some of you will feel comfortable using your voice in larger groups and others may prefer a one-to-one conversation. Please take this opportunity to speak to one another during the day and with members of the AVM Board. I would like to introduce you to: Debbie Usiskin; Alan Murray; Rachael Bayley; Steve Gee; Patrick Daniels; Helen Timbrell.
  • I would like to give you a brief overview of what AVM has been doing during the past year.
  • We would like to hear your voice. If you have ideas how we can help represent you in your volunteering role then please let us know.
  • Would you like to see Volunteer Management a recognised profession similar to the Institute of Fundraising or the Counselling profession? Use your voice and let us know what we need to do to make this happen/
  • AVM are asking you for your ideas to help our thinking. The board of AVM currently has 8 people sitting on it. We can’t do it on our own so please as you hear from the different speakers during the day think how you might find your voice – in your work place; amongst your family and friends; with your peers; on social media; by joining AVM – if you are not already a member or by joining the Board if you are a member.
  • Over the coming months AVM would like to begin to set the standards of volunteering. Volunteering is diverse and volunteer managers work in very different organisations and in very different ways – for example small, medium or large charities; full time hands on volunteer management or volunteer management may only be part of your role; some volunteer managers engage in strategy; purely operational or a mixture of the two; some are part of the senior leadership team and some don’t get the opportunity to influence how the organisation works with volunteers. Whatever we do we manage volunteers. AVM would like to lead the development of a Code of Volunteering Practice which we believe will lead to a professionalisation of volunteer mangement.
  • Some of you will know or have Heard of John Ramsey. John was the founder member of AVM. The sad news is that John has an inoperable Brain Tumour. He sends this conference a message:
  • We want to develop a code of practice that allows all who manage volunteers to sign up. We also want the code to enable the diversity and flexibility that volunteering requires
  • During the day please listen to what is said, reflect and then let your voice be heard. If you want to influence the Code of Volunteering Practice then join Debbie and myself at the Fringe session at 4.10 this afternoon or if you wish to attend Nikki’s session on the Personalisation Agenda or need to leave before 4.10 then do contact Debbie or myself with your thoughts.

    4. 4. Annual Review • The AVM Board has seen changes in personnel and roles. • AVM continues to work on your behalf by talking with various organisations and attending events to help raise the profile of volunteer management. • AVM maintains working relationships with a range of organisations including NCVO, NNVIA and IVO. • AVM contributes to UKVPM’s and other online discussions. • During Volunteers’ Week, AVM blogged about the contributions made by the thousands of people who lead or organise volunteering. • AVM has been unable to be as visible as the Board would have liked to be during the last year.

    6. 6. Finding Our Voice What do you think needs to happen in order for Volunteer Management to become a more recognised profession?
    7. 7. Finding Our Voice How might you find your own voice as a manager of volunteers?
    8. 8. Finding Our Voice • Setting the Standards • Code of Volunteering Practice
    9. 9. Finding Our Voice – John Ramsey • What guides us in how we manage? • Are we any good at managing? • How do we know? • How do you know? • How do you know the volunteer manager sat next to you is competent? • How do you know the volunteer manager sat next to you is ensuring the best experience and outcome for the volunteer, the beneficiary/client, the local community and the organisation? • How do you know the volunteer manager sat next to you has the same principles as you when it comes to managing volunteers?
    10. 10. Finding Our Voice – John Ramsey • The formalisation of standards and the objective measurement of them, is one of the key ways in which professions becomes respected and established. Our failure to do so is stopping the development of volunteer management in any meaningful way. • The secret is to achieve a Code of Conduct that works for volunteer management, but that doesn’t devalue the diversity and flexibility that volunteering requires.
