    In partnership with Volunteer Toronto, TAVA is bringing together our city’s volunteer management professionals for a one-day, once a year conference this February!

    We’ve heard the need for more networking, more practical tools, (and more fun!) between Toronto’s volunteer administrators - and this year’s Game Changers theme will not disappoint. Volunteer managers across the city are changing lives and solving problems every day. It’s time we bring all of the players together for collective learning that will strengthen our sector to ensure collaborative success.

    This year’s conference is designed to boost your problem solving, strategic thinking and relationship building skills through creative and immersive experiences.  Plus, there will be plenty of opportunities to get to know your fellow game changers from diverse organizations across the city.

    Your day at Game Changers will be unlike any other conference – get ready for inspiring voices and plenty of gamified breakout sessions that will keep you rolling, learning and playing along.

    Join your network on Thursday, February 6 from 10:30am - 4:00pm at the Game Changers conference. Stay tuned for further presenter and breakout session details in the New Year.
