    Wow! We can't believe how fast the fall season flew by this year! We had such a great turnout for all of our training sessions, thank you to everyone who participated in our workshops. We received some wonderful feedback and we are thrilled you all enjoyed learning with us over the last few months.

    This fall we traveled to communities outside of Winnipeg to share our knowledge and expertise on board governance, volunteer recruitment and to help organizations build their capacity to deliver programs and services to their community. Thank you to everyone who shared our enthusiasm for putting Manitoba back in our name! We look forward to visiting even more communities in the new year (watch for us in Dauphin and Brandon, just to name a few).

    Thanks to the feedback we received from participants, we have created a winter training calendar that has a little bit of PD for everyone!

    Are you currently sitting on a board and looking for some guidance on how to manage your meetings, or understanding your organization's finances, or perhaps you are dealing with a bit of conflict between your members? Take a look at our Board Governance workshops for more info on how we can help.

    Want to learn more about managing volunteers within your organization? Check out our very popular Intro to Volunteer Management workshop! Did you know Volunteer Manitoba has been delivering this workshop since the 1980s? It's fun to look back at how much volunteer management has changed over the years. We are also offering a new webinar on what to ask a volunteer during the intake process, and how you can strengthen your retention strategies to keep your volunteers long-term.

    Finally, we are bringing our very popular proposal writing workshop back, as well as workshops on social media - how to get started and then how to grow your online strategy - and the basics of bookkeeping. We are also introducing a handful of brand new workshops, to help you plan your events, and build your partnerships. PLUS, we are so thrilled to introduce our brand new workshop - Leading from Within! If you are an emerging leader and would like to know how you can improve your leadership skills and rise through the ranks, this is the workshop for you!

    To learn more about our workshops, or to discuss how we can customize our training for your organization's needs, please visit www.volunteermanitoba.ca or contact our Training Coordinator, Tracy Douglass at 204-477-5180.

    Thank you again for supporting Volunteer Manitoba and the work we do to help build the capacity of the non-profit sector in Manitoba! We look forward to learning with you in the new year!
