Joint Table Advisory Committee is working to contribute to
a better understanding of challenges facing the sector and to
develop ways of strengthening the sector’s capacity to attract,
optimize and hold top talent. Developing Human Resources in the
Voluntary Sector (HRVS) is one of the two projects on skills development
and recruitment that the Advisory Committee is overseeing; the
other is the National Learning Initiative.
