A new network for administrators, managers and coordinators of volunteers for the SDG, Cornwall and Akwesasne region is launching on February 5th. The purpose of the network is to provide support to volunteer administrators through sharing of knowledge and best practices.
“Our objective is to enhance volunteer experiences in SDGCA, foster volunteer engagement to improve retention in our organizations, collaborate as a network to bridge volunteer gaps, and to share best practices and strategies on volunteer recruitment and on-boarding.” says Carilyne Hébert, Executive Director of the Social Development Council(SDC). The network is being formed and supported under the SDC’s umbrella.
The Volunteer Administrators Network (VAN) will meet 8 times a year. These meetings will each focus on an important topic in the volunteer world such as volunteer recruitment, retention, recognition and much more along with an opportunity for members to network. The first meeting taking place on February 5th at 9:30am at the Benson Center will focus on the impact of criminal record checks on volunteer recruitment. Representatives from both the Cornwall Police and the OPP will be speaking to the matter.
