Many churches, nonprofit organizations, and associations partner with volunteers as an integral part of their daily operations.
These organizations often require unpaid assistance to help paid staff complete their work. Creating a healthy volunteer program where people feel equipped, appreciated, and empowered to perform tasks—and eager to invite others to participate on the team—can mean the difference between success and failure.
Tracy Baer, a certified meeting professional and a certified faith-based meeting professional, draws on her experience planning thousands of events to provide practical tips to help organizations succeed in this book. Learn how to:
· help volunteers embrace their decision to serve;
· communicate effectively with volunteers;
· design a system to manage volunteer efforts;
· screen and develop a volunteer team.
Other topics include matching the right people with the right position, setting expectations, and creating volunteer resources.
Build a team that is sustainable and that will help volunteers as well as the organization with the insights and action steps in Cultivating a Healthy Volunteer Team.
