Happy International Volunteer Managers Day


  • International Volunteer Managers Day (IVMDay) was founded and observed for the first time in 1999. The push for IVMDay was led by American Nan Hawthorn who helped form a committee to explore a day recognizing the work of Volunteer Managers. IVMDay was developed in order to bring recognition to individual Managers of Volunteers and their roles in the mobilization and support of the world’s volunteers.
  • Up until 2005, IVMDay shared its day of celebration with International Volunteers Day on December 5.
  • In 2006, the IVMDay International Supporters Group was formed. This group of key leaders and organizations from around the world are helping to spread the word about IVMDay.
  • IVMDay moved to its own day in 2006 and was celebrated initially on November 1 (a clash with key dates in Europe saw a final shift to the day’s current date of November 5 in 2008).
