Special Guest: Erin Spink
Over the past 20 years, Erin Spink has been passionately involved as a volunteer, advocate, and employee in the social profit sector, focusing exclusively in volunteer engagement. In 2008, Spink completed an M.A. (Leadership), submitting a major research project which was the first-ever academic work to quantify the concept of “volunteer engagement”.
For almost a decade she has been an Instructor with Conestoga College and was one of the inaugural instructors for the CSAE’s Foundations of Association Operations at Seneca College. Spink’s academic and thought-leadership work has been published in both Canadian and international journals and she is a requested speaker and trainer. In 2010, she was fortunate to be selected as an Action Canada Fellow, one of only 17 young Canadians chosen.
She had the honour of serving on the Board of Directors for PAVRO (Professional Administrators of Volunteer Resources – Ontario) for five years, including two years as President, during which she led the association to grow its membership levels, build an operating reserve and sit at key decision-making tables including presenting on behalf of the sector to the Minister for Economic Development. Erin currently volunteers as the Training Designs Editor for e-Volunteerism, the premiere journal for Volunteer Engagement practitioners. Recently, Erin was recognized with the 2017 recipient of the Linda Buchanan Outstanding Leader of Volunteers- Ontario award for her contributions to the profession.
