Pivot Online Conference 2020

October 2020


***Due to Covid-19, 2020 registrations open in August***

The annual Pivot Conference is Volunteering New Zealand’s key sector development initiative.

The Pivot Conference theme “Linking vision to action” challenges leaders and managers of volunteers to translate new ideas shared at Pivot into action within their organisation and practice.

Through Pivot, delegates are empowered to meaningfully lead, advocate for, and develop volunteers and volunteerism in Aotearoa New Zealand. Leaders and managers of volunteers will be inspired by a range of speakers who are experts in their fields. Pivot is a chance to connect with peers, and to share and learn together. With a range of International and New Zealand practitioners and thought leaders, participants will leave inspired and invigorated with skills and ideas.

Pivot 2020 will be an online event. We still want participants to leave with a renewed vision of the opportunities and the possibilities for impactful, meaningful and inclusive volunteering and its power: Whiria te tangata – weaving the people together.


Registrations are now open. Fill out the form below to attend. Early bird prices currently apply.
