Recruiting Strategies for High Impact Volunteers 

While we all know that volunteers can benefit any organization, the task of recruiting them can seem challenging. No doubt, people view their time as a well-guarded, precious resource. Volunteers need to see that their making a positive impact not only in their community, but also in their own quality of life. 

When seeking volunteers, volunteer administrators should always have conversations with their team about what skills are needed and the time commitment volunteers should expect to make.  Eliminate the “no one asked me to help” excuse.  People want to feel wanted, appreciated and constructive.  This month’s meeting will focus on how to: 

  • Effectively target your recruitment efforts to find qualified volunteers. 
  • Present your message to appeal to potential candidates. 
  • Harness personal and community networks to make direct personal appeals. 
  • Strategize your broader volunteer outreach efforts. 
Speaker: Queie Barnett 

Networking begins at 8:30am, speaker begins at 9:00am
