Erin Spink Biography
Erin Spink’s interest in volunteers started at the age of six when she pronounced that while it was wrong to eat animals, hamburgers at McDonald’s came from “volunteer cows” and therefore an exception could be made.
She completed a Certificate with Distinction in Volunteer Program Management, followed by an M.A. (Leadership) where she submitted the first-ever academic research quantifying the concept of “volunteer engagement”. Spink’s thought-leadership work has been published around the world, including the CCVA accreditation textbook. She continues to author informative, cutting-edge research that advances the profession through her consulting firm - spinktank- which offers workshops, free resources and online courses, and its research arm CARVE (Centre for Advanced Research in Volunteer Engagement).
Erin had the honour of serving on the PAVRO Board for five years, including two as President. For the last several years, Erin has volunteered as a member of the Engage (formerly e-Volunteerism) Journal, leading the Training Designs section and now co-editor for the Ethics column. She has also co-authored the Points of View articles with Rob Jackson. Erin was recognized in 2017 with the Linda Buchanan Outstanding Leader of Volunteers award and in 2020 with the VMPC Exemplary Leader Award (First Place) for her contributions to the profession.
After 20 years working in Volunteer Engagement, she has changed her mind and no longer believes in eating volunteers.
