Hallmarks at Home – Volunteering and the new normal


During lockdown, volunteers were at the forefront of many of our minds. How could we keep our people engaged and actively contributing to our museums, as well as helping to ensure their wellbeing remotely during very difficult times? Scroll forward to the present and as venues reopen and museums look to the future, volunteering should be top of our agenda again, as we consider how best to involve volunteers in this ‘new normal’ world.

This practical workshop will help you to plan for how the nature of volunteering might change in your museum in the coming months, including key considerations for ensuring volunteers’ health, safety and wellbeing when they return to your museum, as well as ways of capitalising on new ways of engaging volunteers that have emerged during lockdown.

The workshop will be led by Alex Lindley, one of AIM’s Prospering Boards consultants. Alex has extensive experience of working with AIM members and other cultural and Not-for-Profit organisations to develop volunteering strategies, improve volunteer management practices and increase volunteer engagement and motivation.

Please note, as places are limited, this event is for museum members of AIM and there is only one booking per organisation. If you’re not able to make the session, please do let AIM know so we can allocate your place to someone else.
