Happy National Volunteer Week!
Special appreciation goes to all volunteers and the valuable support they provide to the organizations they serve.
And for nonprofit managers, here are three great resources on volunteer engagement and management:
- Engaging Volunteers, the blog from Volunteer Match
- “Creating a Statement of Philosophy on Volunteer Engagement” (access by scrolling down the link’s page), an excerpt from Leading the Way to Successful Volunteer Involvement: Practical Tools for Busy Executives, by Betty B. Stallings with Susan J. Ellis, © 2010, Energize, Inc. (Found in the Energize, Inc. Online Bookstore at http://www.energizeinc.com/store/1-221-E-1.)
- Volunteer Engagement e-book available on my Quality Service Marketing website (click under the red “volunteer” name tag for your free download).
What are you doing to engage and honor your organization’s volunteers?
