Drafting a Great Volunteer Agreement - FREE webinar

In celebration of National Volunteer Week and the launch of our updated volunteer agreement template, we delivered a special free 30 minute webinar exploring the ins and outs of this important document.

Having a well thought out and drafted volunteer agreement is the best way to be clear about the relationship between your organisation and the volunteer. It also helps to manage certain legal risks that could come up in your volunteer program. Access the webinar here.

The webinars listed above qualify for CPD points through Volunteering Victoria’s CPD Program for Professional Leaders of Volunteers (available to members). Contact Volunteering Victoria to find out more.

Here's what past participants have to say about our webinars

“This was the first webinar I have participated in and I couldn't believe how easy and useful it was. A lot of the time I can’t attend training due to location, time and the fact we are a small not-for-profit. I found this really easy and was quite impressed. I will be opting for more webinars in the future as it saves time by not having to travel and I can do it without leaving my office."

“I thought the range of content covered was really good and the questions that were asked were answered really well.”

“Very practical guidance and lots of access to resources and links etc to help in the future!”

“Webinars make it a lot more convenient and I would definitely recommend others to attend your webinars.”

“Really clear, concise and accessible information. Thank you!”
