Volunteering Queensland's 2017 State Volunteering Conference was a resounding success, enabling volunteer-involving organisations to advance their cause, inspiring programs and people, and increasing overall knowledge and understanding of the volunteering industry. On 8 and 9 June 2017, over 80 delegates from across Queensland came together for the inaugural State Volunteering Conference. The delegates were presented with a wealth of information, strategic and practical advice, support and encouragement through engaging presentations by renowned experts, panel discussions, interactive workshops and networking opportunities that prompted conversation on the volunteering climate. Many of the conference presenters travelled far and wide, from interstate or overseas, to share their knowledge and insights to better the future of volunteering throughout Queensland and the wider Australian community. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of our wonderful and inspiring dignitaries, delegates, presenters, panel members, facilitators, board, staff and volunteers who made the conference such a huge triumph. And, a big thank you to our conference sponsor Queensland Fire and Emergency Services.

This workshop looks at all the organisational requirements for including volunteers.

Volunteering Queensland facilitated an engaging workshop on volunteer management at the inaugural Ipswich Visitor Information Centre Volunteers' Conference, held at Woodlands of Marburg in early March. The session 'Be a Volunteer Manager for a Day!' was delivered by Teresa Krumenacher, our Trainer and Assessor, who spoke about how to recruit, retain and reward volunteers. Giving volunteers in attendance a look at what goes on behind the scenes with managing volunteers - aimed at cultivating an appreciation for why staff may do the things they do.

Be inspired, meet volunteers from other organisations and enjoy a great day of express workshops for personal and professional development in August.
