Covid-19: Impacts on Volunteer Engagement and Volunteerism- Global Research Findings with Erin Spink, MA.

Join us on Wednesday, May 20th from 11 am - 12 pm to hear about the only global research conducted into the direct and tangible impacts Covid-19 has had and is having on not only Volunteer Engagement professionals, but also volunteers.

In this session, Erin Spink from spinktank and CARVE (Centre for Advanced Research in Volunteer Engagement) will share the findings from her investigation into how Covid-19 is changing not only the charitable landscape, but specifically impacting volunteers and how they connect with organizations, now and in the future.

You'll walk away with information about:

-changes to volunteering and leaders of volunteers
-trends in virtual/remote volunteering
-key challenges leaders of volunteers are facing
-volunteer communication preferences and what they want to know from you during Covid-19.

Being able to learn from the insights of leaders of volunteers from around the world is an opportunity not to be missed!

About the presenter: 

Erin Spink, MA - Spink's interest in volunteers started at the age of six when she pronounced that while it was wrong to eat animals, hamburgers at McDonald’s came from “volunteer cows” and therefore an exception could be made. She completed a Certificate with Distinction in Volunteer Program Management, followed by an M.A. (Leadership) where she submitted the first-ever academic research quantifying the concept of “volunteer engagement”. Spink’s thought-leadership work has been published around the world, including the CCVA accreditation textbook. 

She continues to author informative, cutting-edge research that advances the profession through her consulting firm - spinktank - which offers workshops, free resources and online courses, and its research arm CARVE (Centre for Advanced Research in Volunteer Engagement). Erin had the honour of serving on the PAVRO Board for five years, including two as President. For the last several years, Erin has volunteered as the Training Designs Editor for e-Volunteerism and co-authors the Points of View articles with Rob Jackson. Erin was recognized in 2017 with the Linda Buchanan Outstanding Leader of Volunteers award for her contributions to the profession. After 20 years working in Volunteer Engagement, she has changed her mind and no longer believes in eating volunteers. 

THANK YOU!
