Implementing the National Standards can be daunting at first. This interactive follow-up session builds on the concepts covered in National Standards Part 1, offering additional support and guidance for implementing the National Standards.

Regardless of your progress – whether you have developed an action plan or have only identified gaps in your processes – this session provides dedicated time for review and discussion. You’ll have the opportunity to seek guidance from our trainer and your peers who are also navigating the National Standards implementation process.

To attend this session it is essential that you have completed the National Standards for Volunteer Involvement (Part 1) training.

Meet the trainer


Hazel Maynard

Sector Development Trainer

Following an early-life career change (from patents translator to not-for profit), Hazel has worked for a number of Not for Profit organisations in the past three decades, including the Australian Red Cross, Amnesty International and The Cancer Council Victoria. She has managed large and small volunteer programs.

Hazel is a trainer for Volunteering Victoria and runs public and in-house training sessions for the not-for-profit sector. She is passionate about encouraging people who are socially isolated or marginalised to volunteer, and upholding the rights of volunteers. Hazel has volunteered for much of her life, joining St John Ambulance Brigade as a volunteer first-aider when she was eleven because she liked the uniform – this relationship was short-lived as she fainted at the sight of blood on her first assignment.

Hazel became a board member of Volunteering Victoria in 2006 and was the President of the Board of Management from 2008 to 2010.  She was awarded honorary life membership of the national peak body, Volunteering Australia, in 2006 and has had a number of articles published in professional journals, mainly on topics relating to volunteer management.
