Thank you for your interest in the Volunteer Management Professionals of New Brunswick (VMPNB). It is wonderful to have individuals such as you who recognize the importance of volunteer management and who want to continue to develop this role in a professional capacity. We are a dynamic team dedicated to promoting a sense of unity, education, cooperation and partnerships among persons and organizations responsible for the management of volunteer resources.
VMPNB recognizes the intricacies and complex nature of successfully engaging volunteers. Strong volunteer programs require leaders with multiple, unique skill sets and a broad knowledge base. We appreciate that many organizations would like to improve their volunteer programs but have little time or resources to address this issue.
VMPNB can be a valuable resource to you no matter where you are in your volunteer management career, or the number of volunteers you lead, or if volunteer management is but one of many responsibilities you have. For over 30 years, VMPNB has been a source for education and networking for our unique sector.
