Engaging Volunteers: It all comes down to good management

March 19, 2019, 11:45 AM - 1:00 PM

The Association of Fundraising Professionals, Ottawa Chapter presents:

With thousands of not-for-profits in the Ottawa area alone, potential volunteers have plenty of choices where to spend their efforts. We need to put in effort to keep our volunteers engaged, to keep them coming back and doing their important work. Volunteer engagement is not a specific skill; rather, volunteers will be most engaged when your volunteer management program is run professionally, with recognition embedded in your daily practice. 

This session will give you an overview of the volunteer management cycle, including planning, recruitment, orientation, supervision, and recognition. You will lean how these stages interlink, and how they all contribute to excellent performance, engagement, and retention.
