Becky Snyder was born in the Midwest, and has since lived on both the East and West Coasts. She graduated from the University of Puget Sound with a B.A. in Elementary Education, worked in Public Relations for Dow Chemical in Washington, D.C., and lived in Cincinnati, Ohio before moving to Medford, Oregon in 1981. Becky has been the director of the RSVP in Jackson County, OR. for the past twenty-five years, and took on the additional duties of the Foster Grandparent Program of Southern Oregon fifteen years ago at which time she was named Executive Director of Community Volunteer Network. During this time, she has personally remained involved in civic engagement through her various volunteer activities, including serving as Chair of the United Way of Jackson County’s annual campaign, and president of statewide Seniors Serving Oregon Coalition (S.S.O.C.), an association comprised of the 26 Senior Corps programs in the state. She was appointed twice to the Commission on Voluntary Action and Service (Oregon Volunteers!) where she served as Secretary and Chair of the statewide Volunteerism Committee, and recently completed two terms on the National Senior Corps Association in which she served as Chair of its RSVP committee. She currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Teresa McCormick Center, serving as Vice Chair.
Becky’s Monday Session:
The Value of Volunteers: How to Recruit, Retain & Recognize
How is it different to recruit a Millennial volunteer from a Baby Boomer volunteer, and how can organizations attract Generation X volunteers? After your volunteers have signed up with your organization, how can you keep them around for years to come, and on the flip side, if they don’t work out, how do you fire a volunteer? What are some tried and true practices of recognizing your volunteers, and what are some that are a little more outside the box? Join our session to learn answers to these questions and more as this experienced panel shares their lessons with you.
Please join our expert panel as they share how to recruit, retain and recognize this essential part of your nonprofit.
