With increased pressure on volunteer managers to achieve greater outcomes with fewer resources, it can be hard to balance what’s best with what’s feasible. That’s where technology can come in. When used appropriately, technology can be a valuable tool for increasing capacity, help streamline processes, make information and support more easily accessible, and provide you with instant access to your volunteers. A bit of tech savviness can go a long way in showing the 21st century volunteer that your organization is current and in-touch with the latest trends. In this session, we will focus on free and low-cost tools that are easily accessible to all and can be creatively utilized to support volunteer administrators in recruiting, retaining, training, orienting, managing, and supervising volunteers.
Please join trainer Molly Frendo (University of Minnesota Extension- bio below) for this interactive workshop where you will learn about technologies currently being used in the field of volunteer management to make volunteer managers' lives a bit easier.
