KEYNOTE SESSION proudly presented by Aurora Energy

The future state of volunteering - changing the ways we think about volunteers

Volunteering is evolving and will continue to do so into the future. How do we ensure we are responding to our society’s needs while retaining the essence of what it is that enables volunteers to make a different? How do we hang on to the past without jeopardising the future? and What responsibility do we have for shaping the future state of volunteering in Australia and more globally? . Dynamic, reflexive and responsive volunteering and volunteer involving organisations are what we need to ensure that volunteers are able to continue to make a contribution to our ever-changing society. How can we be ready to meet this challenge?

KEYNOTE SPEAKER

Dr Megan Paull is senior lecturer in the Murdoch Business School at Murdoch University in Western Australia. Megan has been an active researcher in the volunteering area in Australia for over 25 years and has always tackled topics which challenge managers of volunteers. Her current research includes volunteering in aged care settings, bullying in volunteer settings and valuing volunteer managers. One aspect of research she particularly enjoys is running workshops and seminars, to ensure that her research is communicated back to the communities in which she is working.

An active volunteer, Megan currently serves on the board of Volunteering WA and on the Volunteering WA research committee. Megan was recently on the board of Volunteering Australia and was an active participant in their move from representative to skills based board, chairing their nominations committee during that process.
