Event Details

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  • How to manage “inherited” volunteers who pre-date you and want to stick with outdated ways of working.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.
