Vol. Management: Part 2

Are you feeling overwhelmed or lost with the day-to-day operation of your volunteer program? Have you recently been tasked with building a successful volunteer base for your agency? Running a successful volunteer program requires implementing smart management systems and procedures. This half day session is the second of a 4-part series exploring Volunteer Program Management. Topics covered in this session include: Volunteer Program design, job descriptions, and volunteer management cycle. Participants are encouraged to bring relevant challenges as we troubleshoot together.

Topics Addressed: volunteer management, decision making, team management, communication, evaluation

Level: Introductory level course

Who should attend?

  • Volunteer managers interested in detailed instruction about how to implement a volunteer program.
  • CNM Members working toward a Volunteer Management Certificate.

This work will amplify the impact of nonprofits by helping participants:

  • Identify the key demographic groups that make up the current volunteer population and demonstrate an understanding of their preferred volunteer position.
