Volunteer Management with Shannon Stober
10:00 AM
Bozeman Public Library
Description:
Working with volunteers has the potential to be one of your organization’s most rewarding interactions with the community while also representing one of the most taxing activities on one’s work plan.

Volunteer management is both an art and a science, representing the intersection of relationships and systems, and this juncture understandably tests even the most seasoned employee. The novice manager appears overwhelmed and crisis-driven, the veteran manager seems disconnected while going through the motions and checking the box. Addressing these conditions is dependent upon recognizing the need to re-calibrate experiences, refresh motivation, and realign practices regularly.

In this highly interactive session participants will reconnect with the value of volunteerism, characterize best practices in volunteer recruitment, evaluate volunteer motivation and retention strategies, analyze the application of situational leadership within a volunteer framework, and identify organizational capacity needs as they relate to volunteer programming; all while sharing personal experiences and strategies for working with volunteers within Montana’s unique social and environmental settings.


Lunch is provided.
