Betsy McFarland, CVA presented the second of a three-part series session, Empowering You As a Leader in Advocating for Volunteers, March 23. Resources for this session are provided below.

Countless organizations driving positive change would not exist without volunteers on their team. In fact, research shows that organizations that embrace the efforts of volunteers are healthier and more successful in advancing their missions. Unfortunately, too many organizations silo volunteer efforts and rarely include the volunteer manager on the leadership team or in long-term planning. As a result, volunteer efforts are not as impactful as they could be.

As a leader of volunteers, you have more power and influence to change this reality than you may think! This interactive session will help you fully embrace your leadership role, provide practical tools for advocating on behalf of volunteers, and successfully engage staff and volunteers at every level to work together effectively. Now is the time to elevate your role in a way that is fulfilling to you, the volunteers, and your organization’s mission.

Registrants who participate in the session and complete the session evaluation, will be entered into a raffle drawing for a one-year membership to the Energize Online Training Center.
