About TVMC

Established in 1991, the Texas Volunteer Management Conference is the leading educational event for current and emerging volunteer management professionals throughout Texas and the U.S. Throughout its history, the conference has provided an opportunity to learn from top level speakers, trainers and leaders who are outstanding in their fields. The conference was established and hosted by the Dallas Association of Directors of Volunteers (DADV), the Directors of Volunteers in Agencies (DOVIA) of Tarrant County and VolunteerNow who continue to be valued partners.

The 2021 Texas Volunteer Management Conference theme is Shaping the Future of Volunteerism. The year 2020 was one of great uncertainty and instability. Many volunteer programs were put on hold while others were ramped up to accommodate the growing needs of their communities. We are all left to answer the same question, where do we go from here? At TVMC 2021, we will explore how we can shape the future of volunteerism through improving our ability to adapt to change, think innovatively about volunteer engagement and prepare for the return of normalcy. Let’s collaboratively turn challenges into opportunities to shape the future of our field and grow as professionals.

This year’s conference will be 100% virtual and open to professional volunteer administrators who work for nonprofit organizations or publicly funded agencies throughout the U.S. and around the world. The conference also welcomes anyone in the private sector responsible for working with volunteers including program managers, executive directors, development and communications team members as well as staff in community relations and corporate social responsibility. The conference will have tracks for everyone to dive deeper into topics of interest.

If there was ever a year to attend TVMC it is this one. We understand non-profit budgets are tight and professional development doesn’t come cheap. That’s why we have decided to make this full conference (one-and-a-half days of programming) available at unprecedented low prices. You get the same great quality of programming, for a fraction of the price. Thanks to a generous donor, there are several scholarships available for this year’s conference. Please email conference@volnow.org for more information.
