Anyone who has responsibility for managing volunteers in a palliative care or end of life setting can become a member of AVSM. Membership entitles you to attend regional meetings, training events and our annual conference. It also gives you access to a wealth of good practice information and a national forum – putting you in touch with colleagues from around the country.
The AVSM annual conference brings together hospice volunteer managers from across the country. Each year we travel to a different city to host a two-day conference full of key-note speakers, workshops, seminars and plenty of opportunities to network and share knowledge. Sadly, due to the Coronavirus pandemic we have had to take the difficult decision to postpone the 2020 AVSM Conference, however we hope to hold a one day conference in early 2021. Join us as a member or check back on this website to find out more in the coming months.
These take place across the country and are an opportunity for members to visit other hospices, meet other Voluntary Service Managers and share ideas. See our ‘Regions’ page to find your local region. In 2020 we have also taken these online using Zoom calls to support members remotely due to current meeting restrictions.
