Esprit de Corps: How to Ensure Volunteers Are Engaged and Productive

92 minutes
Recorded 2/22/2017
Instructor: Susan Ellis
Level: Beginner-Intermediate

Every land trust depends on dedicated supporters to achieve its mission, yet the majority of people responsible for mobilizing and managing volunteers do so without formal training in how to build a cohesive volunteer corps. In this webinar, participants • both paid staff and leadership volunteers • will learn time-tested principles of volunteer management and get practical tips they can apply immediately. Internationally recognized volunteerism author and trainer, Susan J. Ellis, will cover a range of topics, including:

  • How to identify the continuum of supporters that include money and time donors • and the differences and overlap among members, financial contributors, board members and other volunteers, student interns, pro bono services, and more
  • The 12 Essential Elements of Successful Volunteer Involvement
  • Why people do and do not volunteer • and how their interests change over time
  • The critical importance of designing meaningful volunteer assignments that attract the people you most want
  • How to create a communication and feedback cycle to maintain enthusiasm
  • How informal, continuous recognition is more effective than banquets and plaques
  • How to connect with the wider world of volunteerism: universal trends and issues, finding colleagues in your own community; making use of international, online resources (many free)

Access to this recording will expire on June 30, 2018, and is subject to availability of the AdobeConnect service.
