The Volunteering Collective biannual forums provide a platform for networking, information sharing and access to guest speakers for the volunteering sector.  These events represent a great opportunity for volunteer coordinators, leaders or anyone engaging volunteers to connect and learn from each other.

Email volunteering@goldcoast.qld.gov.au to be added to the Collective's mailing list and receive:

  • event information
  • regular sector updates
  • relevant opportunities to the volunteering sector.

Please note that the forums are also promoted on the Gold Coast Events Calendar and are usually held in March and October.
