Volunteer Leadership Programs

Australia’s capacity to respond to disasters relies on emergency management volunteers. Today’s volunteer leaders must negotiate a maze of relationships, networks and expectations in order to lead effectively in the disaster environment. Leadership demands innovation, creativity, negotiation, improvisation and strategic vision.

AIDR delivers a program of training events to enhance volunteer skills in leadership and organisational management.  During 2017 AIDR will build individual and organisational capability and promote collaboration and innovation in our workplaces through the delivery of the VLP throughout Australia.

Are you interested in other AIDR professional development opportunities to build your leadership skills?

The AIDR Volunteer Professional Development program has a focus on leadership skills. Where possible, these events are accessible to volunteers, including weekend scheduling.

Full details can be found here, or see the events page for information about all of AIDR's activities.
