Don’t assume everyone is on the same page. Clarify roles and procedures with long-time and new volunteers.
This 60 minute webinar will focus on thorny issues of performance management in volunteer engagement.
In this session you’ll learn:
- How to understand and balance the perspective of new and existing volunteers who may be very different from each other.
- How to manage “inherited” volunteers who pre-date you and want to stick with outdated ways of working.
- How to differentiate loyal volunteer commitment from the difficulty of “ownership”,even at the board level.
- To set and enforce boundaries and policies, especially if this has not been done before.
- The importance of clearly defining who does what and how at the start of a volunteer commitment and as things evolve.
Who will benefit?
This webinar is aimed at those with a good knowledge of the volunteer management and can apply it effectively.
