Volunteers are the backbone to many of our organizations. They accomplish huge amounts of work and save us thousands of dollars in wages. But how do you get the right volunteer for the job? This session explores writing job descriptions, marketing the job, and interviewing prospective volunteers. You will leave with forms, ideas, and questions to get you started right away. Even if you already have a volunteer program, these tips will help you make the right match of volunteer and task.

Keeping volunteers engaged and happy takes work. This session focuses on training, recognition, and evaluation of volunteers. Why do volunteers give their time? What are they looking for in return? Matching volunteer wants with organization deliverables makes all the difference in whether a volunteer sticks around or looks for another place to offer time and expertise.

No matter how well thought out and responsive a volunteer program is designed, challenges crop up. This session investigates firing volunteers, navigating change, solving problems, managing liability, and structuring programs. How up-to-date is your volunteer handbook? Bring challenges from your own volunteer program and we will look at what might be changed structurally to give better results.
