Event Manager appointed to coordinate Volunteer Conference 2020

Planning for the Volunteer Conference 2020 in Townsville is ramping up with the appointment of an Event Manager.  Tasked with enacting the vision of the Volunteer Management Committee and coordinating activities conducted by Volunteering North Queensland’s volunteer staff and the event volunteers, Kim Borkowski brings a wealth of experience to the role.

Kim has 20 years of experience in the events, entertainment and marketing industries in government departments and private enterprise. Her work includes being part of the team that delivered the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games, Marketing and Promotions Officer at Barrier Reef Institute of TAFE and Event and Protocol Officer with Townsville City Council.

Kim is excited to bring Volunteering North Queensland’s conference vision to fruition in 2020 and beyond, as well as delivering other events throughout the year, to support volunteer managers and NFP organisations.

Kim has a long family history in Townsville and after years globetrotting and living in Sydney and on the Sunshine Coast, returned in 2013 with her husband and 2 children to be closer to family and friends.
