Effective Volunteer Management: Volunteer Recruitment, Training, Retention, Leadership Structures & Managing Difficult Issues in the Moment - November 1 + 4, 2022
Nonprofits rely on volunteers to fulfill their mission, programs, and services and some organizations rely solely on volunteers to do the work of their organization. Recruiting, training, and managing volunteers take planning and strategy. The past few years have changed the way that individuals give their time and it is important that nonprofits adapt to best practices for recruitment, retention, training, and building a leadership pipeline of volunteers. This workshop is applicable to one-time volunteers, recurring volunteers, leadership committees, chapter-based organizations, affinity groups, alumni groups, and more. Learn more and register here.

As fundraising staff, we need to be able to understand the donor's passion to connect the passion with the action of the nonprofit. This workshop will cover how to engage donors by combining passion with the action using real examples. Interested in learning more about this workshop? Click here!

Trauma-Informed Facilitation: November 8 + 15, 2022
The role of a group facilitator is to ensure that group members are fully able to participate, interactions among participants go smoothly, and that the group achieves its intended goal. Sometimes as a facilitator, you have to discuss difficult topics as part of a workshop, training, or facilitated experience. Elements of a facilitated experience may not always go as planned especially if the group is discussing a difficult topic or sharing personal stories or narratives. As a facilitator, you want to be prepared for any situation and create the best possible experience for participants in a group. Learn more about and register for this two-part workshop here.
