Heidi Jakop, CVA – Cultivating & Empowering Leadership in your Volunteers

Empowering your volunteers to take ownership, initiative, and lead provides opportunities for your volunteers to grow and flourish, just like your organization. Surrounding yourself with those who have strengths and talents that differ from yours not only builds your organizations capacity but allows staff to hone new skills as you work alongside them.

This session will share examples, steps, and opportunities for cultivating and empowering leadership in your volunteers and engaging a diversely talented team. Drawing from the Servant Leadership style, we will also explore creating the conditions and environment that allow volunteers to shine.

Heidi Jakop, CVA is the Director, Volunteer Engagement for Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association. Heidi is the President of the Administrators of Volunteer Resources of BC. Heidi was most recently an instructor at Langara College for the Volunteer Coordinator Certificate Program and facilitates workshops and webinars for university, municipality, volunteer centres, and professional associations.

Angela Williamson, CVA – How I’ve learned to lead my way and take charge of my day

I want anyone listening to find at least 1 idea that they can implement that moment, or the next day to either save them time, create larger capacity of volunteering in their organization, or empower them to add volunteers in their own work. A practical talk with many take-away points.

Angela Williamson, CVA, has been the volunteer manager at Hagley Museum & Library in Delaware for 11 years. She has been the president of the Delaware Association of Volunteer Administrators (DAVA) 4 years and supporting in other roles in other years.

Beth Steinhorn :How Your Peers Went from Coordinator to Director and from a Do-er to an Influencer

In this session, participants will:

• Understand where they can find research to support strategic volunteer engagement.

• By hearing case studies from the field, learn at least three different paths for advocating for strategic engagement.

• Gain tips on how to get a seat at the leadership table and shift from managing volunteers to, instead, serving as an internal consultant to support staff from across the organization in effectively engaging and supporting volunteers.

The author of multiple books and articles on strategic volunteer engagement, she is a popular speaker and trainer, known for her interactive and inspiring presentations.
