Volunteer Management 101
As every organization grows, there comes a time when things change from “coordinating a handful of people” to “managing volunteers” to get things done. No matter the agency size or the number of people involved, there are effective strategies for managing people to work on common goals. From identifying tasks, establishing processes, finding the right people to get involved and then managing their participation, this webinar will cover the basics of volunteer management. Anyone who works or volunteers in animal welfare will find this 60-minute webinar helpful.
