How to lose volunteers in 10 easy steps

Wednesday 06 September 2017
09:45 to 13:00

Volunteers can be an organisation’s most important resource, so attracting and keeping them should be a top priority. However there are many common mistakes that can turn away people willing to lend their time to us.

This session takes a light-hearted approach to the topic. It will be suitable both for people new to volunteer management and those with a little more experience who want to embed a volunteer-friendly culture in their organisation.
The session will cover an overview of key volunteer management topics including:

  • Recruitment
  • Induction
  • Supervision
  • Retention
  • Appropriate policies and procedures

Learning objectives, attendees will have:

  • A better understanding of the volunteer’s perspective
  • An overview of key volunteering issues
  • Increased confidence in volunteer management
  • Conceptual tools to improve volunteer recruitment and retention
