Advocating for Your Volunteer Program from Within The Organization
June 7| 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. | $65
When organizations look for areas to reduce spending, volunteer management positions are in danger of being eliminated and/or the responsibilities shifted to fundraising, programmatic, or human resource positions. Volunteers are often critical to accomplishing an organization's mission, so why is managing volunteers viewed as a luxury? Reinforce the importance and potential of your volunteer program and advance your position as the leader of volunteer engagement by gaining an understanding of organizational change, communicating with upper management, gaining staff commitment, and training fellow employees to effectively work with volunteers. This class qualifies for credit toward the Chancellor’s Certificate in Volunteer Management
