WORKSHOP: Successful Volunteer Retention - ONLINE SEPT 2021

16 Sep 2021 - 10:00am to 11:30am

WORKSHOP: Successful Volunteer Retention - ONLINE SEPT 2021

Facilitated by Chris Atkinson, Regional Advisor, Volunteering Waikato

PLEASE NOTE: This workshop will be held in two parts:
A. Thursday, September 16, 10am-11.30am
B. Thursday, September 23, 10am-11.30am - registration is for BOTH PARTS

WORKSHOP: Retaining volunteers is more important than ever to ensure your volunteer programme remains sustainable. Do applicants disappear not long after they’ve started? Are established volunteers becoming more short term in their commitment? Retention is more than just a chocolate bar and morning tea twice a year - connecting with volunteers in other ways is more effective and viable.

This workshop has a focus on volunteer retention and will explore:

  • How status quo volunteer engagement needs to change
  • The importance of treating volunteers like customers
  • How to improve your recruitment road map
  • The difference between recognition and acknowledgement
  • How to foster and grow longer term commitment

Reading material and a printable (if you choose) workbook will be provided prior to each workshop session.

This workshop will be held via Zoom, and the link will be sent to you in due course.
