10:30 am - 1:30 pm
This event is for all those who work (either paid or otherwise) with teams of volunteers in museums.
What better way to start the festive season than by meeting with other Volunteer Coordinators and Volunteer Managers from the region to discuss Volunteer Engagement. With speakers from Lowestoft, Ipswich and Newmarket, it is hoped that the session will encourage dialogue over lunch about different ways to engage volunteers from your local communities. By sharing good practice, we can all learn from each other. As it will only be a month until Christmas, festive jumpers are optional.
