In keeping with this year’s International Volunteer Managers Day theme of “be the voice,” we are releasing the 2018 Volunteer Management Progress Report survey last week. So far, 412 leaders of volunteers have participated in the first six days, from the US, Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Italy, Ireland.
If you haven’t had a chance yet, we hope you will take a moment to take this “state of the industry” survey and become part of the largest crowdsourcing of volunteer administrator data in the world.
Over the past two years, over 1,500 leaders of volunteers in 18 countries have taken VolunteerPro’s annual Volunteer Management Progress Report survey and it continues to grow.
Here’s What People Are Saying So Far
“The Leaders and Managers of volunteers are one of the most connected and sharing group of professionals I have ever come across. Thank you for developing the survey to further the aims of the profession.”
“One of the issues Volunteer Managers face is recognition for the complexity of their role and professional training and education to support and develop their role…”
“Challenging role with some moments of joy! Networking with other leaders of volunteers is critical for continuous improvement and personal sanity.”
“I enjoy working with volunteers. I believe I would enjoy it more if I had buy in from staff and management – we could be strategic about placement and expand our programs. I am saddened by the lack of involvement from the top down.”
“Thank you for your help in trying help volunteer administration get better results in our chosen field.”
