*NEW* How to Be a Champion of Volunteer Engagement – for Boards and EDs
Sign up. October 16, 8:30am-10:30am, Alice Fong and Nancy Long
“Volunteers are the heart of our organization.” As leaders, we’ve all heard this- we have probably even uttered it. And there is truth to this sentiment. Volunteers are the fuel for many organizations’ crucial programming. But many organizations devote too little time, support and resources, especially from the executive director and board, to most effectively tap and sustain their volunteer workforce. Many organizations leave volunteer development to the volunteer coordinator’s domain rather than seeing volunteers as a strategic resource to be considered and strengthened with leadership attention. When did your board last focus attention on volunteers as a strategic human resource for your organization?
