Back in 2002 CASE bagan conversations with member organsation Volunteers for Isolated Students Education about the challenges involved in managing over 500 volunteer educational tutors assisting families living in remote areas.
The result of working together over next few years resulted in the creation of a project called the ‘Online Volunteer Management System’ which is now central to the the success and operation of an organisation delivering a service much in demand. The OVMS is without a doubt a project that has supported the great work of many wonderful people who are willing to donate their expertise for a great cause. CASE is very proud to partner with VISE in this work.
Every few years VISE volunteers from NT, QLD, ACT and VIC meet to network and build on their work. CASE President Darrell Burkey has the honour of joining them this year in Melbourne, Vic to ensure that the OVMS project is meeting their needs, to gain a better understanding of the challenges they meet and to plan for enhancements of the system.
Everyone at CASE would like to thank VISE for the opportunity to apply our skills in a way that benefits so many Australians and would like to express our best wishes for the continued growth and success of the organisation. It’s been a real honour to work with the many people who make VISE such a wonderful organisation and we’d like to congratulate them on 21 years of operation!
