Announcing the 2017 IVM Day blog carnival!

ivm day 2017

International Volunteer Managers Day (aka IVM Day) began in 1999 as a way to celebrate the profession of volunteer leadership. This year’s theme for IVM Day is “be the voice” and bloggers are coming together to share their perspectives and ideas on this theme. Writing about volunteer leadership is one way to be a voice for the sector, so let’s hear it!

What is a blog carnival and how does it work?

A blog carnival is “a blog article that contains links to other articles covering a specific topic. Most blog carnivals are hosted by a rotating list of frequent contributors to the carnival, and serve to both generate new posts by contributors and highlight new bloggers posting matter in that subject area.” (via Wikipedia)

Submissions collected for this year’s IVM Day will be included on one blog post published here on November 5 and will be shared on Twitter (here and here) as well as on Facebook.

In return, I ask that you share the blog carnival post on your own social media channels as well. Remember to use the hashtag: #IVMDay17

Who should submit a post? Does it have to be new?

If you have thoughts to share for IVM Day and have a blog, the answer is YOU! I’m open to submissions from everyone and are looking forward to sharing from a variety of perspectives and experience levels.

It doesn’t have to be a brand new post, but should speak to the theme of this year’s IVM Day. If you submit more than one post, I may choose to only feature one depending on number of overall submissions. You can also see a running list of IVM Day blog posts on Susan J Ellis’s October Hot Topic for Energize, Inc.
