This is Volunteer Victoria's leadership development and networking group for nonprofit professionals who self identify as Emerging Leaders in the Greater Victoria, British Columbia area. You may be wondering, what exactly is an Emerging Leader? At Volunteer Victoria, we understand this stage as including non-profit staff and volunteers who have at least 3 years meaningful work/volunteer experience in the non-profit sector. Some of our members fit that description, some members have 20+ years and are still honing their leadership skills (this includes Executive Directors who would like to keep developing their leadership learning). So it's up to you - where's your leadership learning edge?
This is a project of Volunteer Victoria, now in its fifth year as of 2014. It was initiated to support leadership development in non-profit staff, with an eye to addressing looming leadership gaps in the nonprofit sector as our legacy leaders retire. So what do we do? The major activities of the Network are networking with peers in the nonprofit sector, and learning everything to do with nonprofit sector leadership - whatever leadership looks like to our members.
