Non-Profit Roundtable (Madison) | Volunteer Engagement & Management 

Non-profit volunteers are precious resources who require strategic recruitment and coordination if both the organization and the volunteers are to realize full potential.  This session will help participants reflect on the assets your organization needs in your volunteers and how to effectively recruit, inspire and retain volunteers for the collaborative partnership that will drive your organization’s mission.

Session Objectives:

  1. Gain a greater understanding of today’s landscape of volunteerism
  2. Explore tools and practices for effective volunteer management

In looking at Today’s Landscape of Volunteerism we will examine the following areas:

  • Definition of Volunteerism
  • Rules of Volunteer Engagement
  • Reasons for Volunteerism
  • Motivations
  • Trends

To respond to Volunteering in Today’s Landscape where volunteers can contribute 24 hours a day through technology and do not have to be committed to one organization, we will examine a model of effective volunteer management that has 8 steps for success:

  1. Needs Assessment
  2. Job Development & Design
  3. Recruitment
  4. Interviewing & Matching
  5. Orientation & Training
  6. Supervision & Motivation
  7. Recognition
  8. Evaluation
