Do you see a gap, maybe chasm, between great ideas, your organizations wish list and the talent to make them a reality? Time and expertise are often the culprits. This webinar will explore opportunities to engage the abundance of highly skilled volunteer talent, eager to contribute their time and expertise in a meaningful way to your organization. We will explore:

 

  • Barriers
  • Action steps to get the ball rolling
  • Reactive volunteer engagement, how to move forward when talented individuals approach you
  • Building buy-in and addressing concerns from your staff team
  • Explore examples of engaging volunteers via distance, at a program support level, and the highly skilled volunteer
  • Resources
