Maximizing the Volunteer’s Experience

Volunteers are the lifeblood of nonprofits. But if volunteers feel underutilized, unappreciated, or unnecessary they will quickly leave the organization. Join Richard Cohrs, retired District and Congregational Relations Manager for Lutheran Hour Ministries-North America Volunteer Opportunities and learn to maximize the volunteer’s experience and their desire to stay involved in your organization. Topics will include job descriptions, recruitment, orientation, training, supervision, evaluation and recognition.
