March Workshop: Successful Volunteer Retention - Online

21 Mar 2024 to 28 Mar 2024

March Workshop: Successful Volunteer Retention - Online
  • Facilitated by Chris Atkinson - Regional Advisor, Volunteering Waikato

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 will be held online across two sessions:
    SESSION 1:
    Date: Thursday 21 March
    Time: 10:00am - 11:30am
    SESSION 2:
    Date: Thursday 28 March
    Time: 10:00am - 11:30am

Cost: $70.00 for non-member organisations. $40.00 for member organisations.
Registration: Registration covers both sessions. Please register below by the close date.
Location: Both sessions will be held via Zoom. We will email you a link in due course.
Resources: Reading material and a printable (if you choose) workbook will be provided prior to each workshop session.

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.


Open until Tuesday 19 March 2024 at 4:00pm
