Dear Members of Volunteer Management Professionals of New Brunswick,
As we approach November 5th, it is with great pleasure that I write to you today to celebrate International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMD). This day provides us with a wonderful opportunity to recognize and appreciate the invaluable work that each and every one of us contributes to our community. The theme for International Volunteer Managers Day 2023, “Helping Others Help” resonates deeply with me personally and is ethos of our association. The role of the volunteer management profession is pivotal in ensuring the success of organizations and the positive impact made in the lives of those they serve. The dedication, passion, and tireless efforts of leaders of volunteer resources are the driving force behind the many achievements of volunteers.
In honor of this special day, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to each member of our association for your unwavering commitment to volunteerism. Your skills, leadership, and compassion are instrumental in mobilizing volunteers and creating meaningful connections within our community.
I encourage you all to take a moment to reflect on the impact you have made and continue to make in the lives of countless individuals.
Once again, thank you for your remarkable dedication to our profession and for being an essential part of our community. Together, we are making a difference.
I wish you all a Happy IVMD! I truly hope you will find opportunities to celebrate!
