Volunteer Coordinators Network Meetings

We hold volunteer coordinator meetings every 3rd Tuesday of the month in Hastings and Napier alternately, and you are invited!

These meetings offer the opportunity to discuss volunteering-related topics, ask questions and share volunteer management ideas and experience. Join our mailing list to be notified of upcoming meetings.


We can provide assistance with creating role listings that achieve the results you are looking for. If you have an upcoming event, talk to us about promoting it via our Facebook page.


Take advantage of our library of information about recruitment, training and supervision of volunteers. We also have resources to help with setting up a volunteer programme, recruiting volunteer coordinators and more.


Our annual conference should be on the calendar of every volunteer-involving organisation in the region. See our Training page for information on upcoming events.
