WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

Every nonprofit leader deals with difficult committee members, volunteers, or board members. Difficult volunteers can prevent nonprofits leaders from effectively pursuing their mission and programs and can negatively impact staff and other volunteers. In this training, we will review common issues that arise and offer step-by-step solutions to mitigate these issues. Volunteer issues covered in the workshop will include social media policies, interpersonal conflicts among volunteers and with staff, alignment of volunteer expectations, volunteer engagement, and volunteer retention. Participants in this workshop will leave with strategies and tools to immediately implement in their own organizations to more effectively manage their volunteer force.
