Show why volunteer managers are so important!

Scott Stivers
There's one easy way to show why volunteer managers are so important. It's simple! Attend the Strengthening Service Breakfast and bring a colleague or friend.

At this event, attendees will see a video highlighting the importance of volunteer engagement professionals and hear testimonials clarifying the connections between volunteer engagement professionals, volunteers, and recipients of volunteer services. There will never be a better time to explain the importance of what you do to your boss, coworker, or spouse for that matter. And best of all, you won’t be the one doing the explaining! All you need to do is enjoy a free breakfast.

According to Amy Homstad, Volunteer Services Manager at Park Nicolett, “In Minnesota, we kind of take volunteerism for granted. It’s part of who we are. So, it’s easy to think that volunteers simply ‘exist,’ and that there isn’t this big infrastructure underneath them, supporting them.” For any organization whose volunteers are critical to their mission, we, as volunteer managers, are the foundation. Invite someone important to you to come hear that message! Or, simply come and be reminded of just how important YOU are. Register Today!

The Strengthening Service Breakfast is a free event on Wednesday, October 18th at 7:45 am in Saint Paul. You can find all the details and a link to register HERE.
