These uncertain times are an opportunity to re-imagine how you engage volunteers in your organization. This workshop will go beyond just looking at how to enlist your current volunteers using technology. You'll learn the process to design volunteer positions from the ground up, taking advantage of opportunities to engage volunteers in new ways, including virtually or remotely.

Who Should Attend:

Those responsible for supervising volunteers. Participants can include Executive Directors, program managers, board members, committee members, volunteer managers, coordinators and anyone who is interested in learning more about this topic.
