Webinar overview

P&C Federation has invited Colleen Williams from The Centre for Volunteering to present this webinar for our P&C Association leaders so you can hear about what is happening in the wider volunteer community in NSW. The presentation will cover:

  • the challenges being felt in the volunteering sector and the opportunities for organisations to reboot programs and reengage volunteers
  • volunteer motivations and barriers to volunteering
  • look at volunteering through a different lens to adapt, reinvigorate and reengage
  • resources available to support volunteer engagement.

After the presentation there will be the opportunity to ask questions of Colleen.

This webinar will be facilitated by Natalie Walker, P&C Federation President.

Registrations close 12 May at midday AEST. 

Please note that this webinar is for P&C Federation members only and is available to P&C Association Office Bearers. Your Office Bearer details with P&C Federation will need to be up to date before registering.
