|VOLUNTEERING - IS IT TIME TO CONSIDER AS AN ASSET ?|
Should Volunteer Work be considered as a Community Asset ?
On 06 Jun 2005 an article appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald "Bored members hate meetings".
The article identified 5 major concerns from a survey of 352 Volunteering Organisations conducted by a
Melbourne based Not-for-Profit Organisation called Ourcommunity.com.au.
Around the same time, a similar organisation to the OIC in Silicon Valley called the Silicon Valley Webguild started to emphasise
that Volunteers area very important resource for the Webguild to be able to operate its Special Interest Groups.
In addition there have been a number of grants/funds published on the OTMG Tender Information Management Service [TIMS] for Volunteer initiatives.
Volunteering and the willingness of people to Volunteer is a major asset for any community hence at the 1996 Annual General Meeting
OIC members voted unanimously on Mandate 3 to develop and implement an eCredits process to not only stimulate Volunteers
but also generate business for the local community
The Seminar on Thu 25 Aug 2005 will examine this eCredits process and invite attendees
to decide if the time is right for an eCredits process as a way to recognise Volunteering as an Asset
for the individual, the organisation represented and the Community involved with the Volunteer effort.
