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 third 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.
