(SAN FRANCISCO)- "International Volunteer Manager Appreciation Day" (IVMA Day) is Wednesday, November 1, and VolunteerMatch acknowledges the invaluable contributions made by Volunteer Managers on behalf of communities, and encourages everyone to volunteer in celebration of this important event.
Volunteer Managers are the dedicated group of skilled individuals who translate a passion for good deeds into the effective recruitment, training, support and coordination of the world's volunteers.
Founded in 1999, IVMA Day recognizes these individuals by promoting a greater awareness of the catalytic role that Volunteer Managers play in the mobilization and support of volunteers everywhere.
"Volunteer management is about leadership," said Greg Baldwin, president of VolunteerMatch. "We applaud the hard work of those with the vision and passion to put the power of volunteering to good use."
VolunteerMatch supports the efforts of Volunteer Managers through its popular web-based volunteer recruitment service, which streamlines the process of securing and deploying skilled volunteers. In fact, with a network of more than 43,000 nonprofits, finding a meaningful way to make a difference is never more than a few clicks away, which is why volunteers have already made more than 2.7 million matches to nonprofits via VolunteerMatch.
