Julie’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.
