Pivot Conference 2019

Pivot 2019 registrations will be opening soon!


The annual Pivot Conference is Volunteering New Zealand’s leading professional development initiative for leaders and managers of volunteers. Its perennial theme, “Linking vision to action” challenges leaders and managers of volunteers to translate new ideas into action.

The 2019 annual national conference will be held on Wednesday 16th of October in Wellington 9 am to 5 pm. The conference will open with an optional networking event on Tuesday 15 October, and we will also offer two optional Masterclasses on Thursday 17th October, 9 am to 3 pm.

At the Conference, leaders and managers of volunteers will be inspired by a range of speakers who are experts in their fields. Pivot is your chance to connect with your peers, and to share and learn together. With a range of International and New Zealand practitioners and thought leaders, you’ll leave inspired and invigorated with skills and ideas that will take you into the future.

Pivot 2019 will deliver the latest information on the volunteering landscape and the outlook for the future. With content ranging from sustainable volunteer involvement, best practice in volunteer management, engagement with a diverse volunteer base and creating messages that resonate with wide audiences.
