Ways to show appreciation and acknowledgment for volunteers with Sidney Schuttrow
Our volunteers are indeed our heroes and can be your organization's biggest advocates and donors.Thanking volunteers give them a sense of pride in their work, showing them the value and importance of everything that they do. Recognition also helps you recruit new volunteers, so invest time finding ways to recognize your volunteer force.
Join us as we discover “creative ways” to express our gratitude. In this meeting, we will be joined by Sidney Schuttrow, from the Tennessee Commission on Aging and Disability, and she will help us explore strategies to grow your support base while showing appreciation.
