Do you need to re-energize your volunteers? Members join an organization for various reasons. Capitalize on their enthusiasm when they join. Volunteering is one of the best ways to network. Volunteers are provided an opportunity to meet new members in a structured environment. Despite the benefits, few organizations create volunteer roles that promote new membership or develop communications programs to increase volunteer knowledge of the many opportunities that membership provides as well as expectations. This presentation will help the attendee determent the best way to recruit volunteers, identify what is going wrong in many volunteer relationships and how to structure and communicate opportunities and feedback that address the core desire to volunteer.
After Lynne Wellish’s presentation attendees will be able to:
- Re-tool volunteer jobs to aide in recruitment
- Understand what your volunteers want
- Build better volunteers
