International Volunteer Managers Day, Wednesday 5th November, now in its 15th year is an apt time to reflect on how Community and Voluntary organisations value and invest in volunteer management. The role of the Volunteer Manager is an essential one as it is she/he that coordinates and drives the volunteer management programme and provides ongoing support to volunteers. In the absence of an appointed, resourced and supported Volunteer Manager an organisation’s involvement, management and retention of Volunteers is adrift.
