9 – 1 1a.m.”Volunteers in Higher Responsibility Roles”
Webinar produced by MAVA
In the current economic environment, many organizations are rethinking how volunteers can be involved in higher level and leadership roles. With limited resources for staff, this is one of the few routes open to do more, or even keep up. You will:
- Explore opportunities for involving volunteers being placed in higher responsibility roles
- Look at the complexities of volunteers being placed in higher responsibility roles
- Offer a framework for looking at expanded roles for volunteer involvement
