National Networks COP:
Those working at a national level face different issues than those operating on a local or regional level. Often national level leaders are engaged in big picture, strategic or policy decision-making. Sometimes those operating at a national level don’t work directly with volunteers, but rather help empower others in their organizations who do. Join the discussion to connect and learn from others working nationally. We invite anyone looking to brainstorm around the unique issues facing volunteer leaders on a national level.  This COP group will be a chance to network, share expertise, ask questions, and solve problems with your peers. 

 *note* When you register, you will be automatically be registered for all the future COP dates (listed below) and monthly reminders will be sent - the COP will use the same zoom link.

These Standards were revised and updated in May of 2022 by volunteer engagement professionals (VEP) for volunteer engagement professionals. Based on extensive research and experience, these Standards have been shown to deliver value to both the organization and individual volunteers.
 
This new version and the accompanying Self-Evaluation Tool were developed to be adaptable, relevant, and scalable within organizations of every size, structure, and industry. The Standards incorporate current trends in volunteer engagement such as inclusion and diversity, transformational volunteerism, and context-based volunteer management models.
 
The Standards can be useful to VEPs at every level of experience. Those who are new to the field can use these them as a guide for developing their organization's volunteer engagement programs. Those who are experienced VEPs and whose organizations have more established volunteer programs can use these them as a way to assess the effectiveness of their organization's volunteer engagement. In all cases, these Standards can be used to make the case for increased investment in and integration of volunteer engagement.
 
The AL!VE Standards are a living document, so the Standards Task Force will be soliciting feedback over the next year on their usability and effectiveness of these Standards so we can continuously update and improve them. We'll be developing training and support opportunities for interested users. Get the inside scoop by joining us for an introduction to these Standards at the next AL!VE Academy on June 24 @ 2 PM Eastern: Using Standards to Make Your Case: Introducing AL!VE's Standards for Organizational Volunteer Engagement.  The recording of the webinar will be posted here after the 26th.
