Burn Out This topic has been around for decades. It is defiantly an area that has taken on the spotlight as we continue to move forward in our daily lives and during these uncharted times. A highly requested topic, please join us as two highly respected professionals take on this topic. Cari Moore from the Volunteer Engagement perspective and Carly Koeppen from the Staff Engagement perspective.

This Micro Workshop will provide some important tips for you, your organization, volunteers, and staff alike. Get ready for an awesome discussion. Bring your questions, thoughts, and ideas!!

Bio: Cari Moore has been involved in the Volunteer world for her entire adult life. She is a Volunteer BC Executive Board member, has been trained in the Canadian Code for Volunteer Involvement and has facilitated volunteer management workshops in the Fraser Valley for over 15 years. Know Your Boundaries! Managers, Coordinators, and yes, Volunteers alike all need to be aware of what burnout is and when it is happening. Lack of boundaries or simply not being aware of boundaries as a volunteer can be one of the fastest routes to volunteer burnout. Burnout has a direct impact on your valued volunteers, staff, the important work of your organization, and ultimately the clients being served. At the end of the day if not addressed, it will only get worse.

She is currently the Clinical Nurse Educator for the Victoria Mental Health Centre. A lifelong volunteer and advocate, she is the Mental Health Advocate for the South Island region of the BC Nurses Union and sits on the executive committee. Having experienced burnout very early into her career, Carly found hope in the Solution Focused approach and by digging into the concept of vicarious resilience. She is a strong believer in finding what works and doing more of it.
