South East Volunteers is hosting the 2017 Volunteer Awards Gala event, which will recognise and celebrate the important work performed by not-for-profits, volunteer managers and volunteer programs that work across the South East of Melbourne. We are seeking to recognise organisations and programs that demonstrate commitment to volunteering.
The Gala will include approximately 200 representatives from Community Service Organisations in the areas of Greater Dandenong, Kingston, Bayside, Monash, Casey and Cardinia.
To coincide with National Volunteer Week, the Gala will be held on Wednesday 10 May 2017 and is a perfect opportunity to celebrate and acknowledge the contributions volunteers make in the southeast.
The award categories are:
– Volunteer Manager of the Year
– NFP Organisation of the Year
– Volunteer Program of the year
– People’s Choice for Best NFP Organisation
Nominations will focus on the incredible achievements of volunteers, NFP organisations, and volunteer managers across the region. Please refer to the Criteria for Awards section in the Nomination Form regarding eligibility for each award category. Nominees may be self-nominated or put forward by others. Applicants must also list an additional referee and be registered with South East Volunteers or Greater Dandenong Volunteer Resource Service. To register with us, please find more information on our Community Service Organisation Registration Page.
Note: Staff and volunteers of South East Volunteers are ineligible for nominations.
Nominations close on Friday 31 March 5.30pm.
