Volunteer Management is a busy job. Particularly after the chaos of the last year, volunteer managers were pulled into supporting new and different tasks. Whether you're simultaneously supporting fundraising events, taking over social media communications, or just have a full plate exclusively focused on volunteer management tasks, there are tips and strategies to help you manage it all.
Join Lindsay Browne, Director of Family and Community Engagement at Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity, to learn to take the reins on your volunteer management program and regain control. During this session, she will share strategies to keep focused on the big goals, to reclarify job scope and boundaries, and to get more done to keep up with your full workload.
Then, we’ll use breakout rooms to facilitate small group discussions. You will have the opportunity to brainstorm together, exchange ideas, and gain new insight from your nonprofit peers. This session is ideal for volunteer managers and anyone who wants to take control of their workload after seismic shifts.
This is a program of the Let's Connect: Virtual Discussion Series.
Lindsay Browne has been working in the nonprofit sector since 2008. She started working at Truman Heritage Habitat for Humanity with community engagement, including volunteer management, in 2017. She has her undergraduate degree in Sociology from Grinnell College and her Master of Public Administration degree in Nonprofit Management from the Bloch School at UMKC. She was promoted to Director of Family & Community Engagement in the Summer of 2017. Lindsay is interested in how to improve prioritization and organization to make the most of available time for herself and her team. She has two dogs named Pancakes and Waffles (and a husband and three cats with less exciting names).
Your active participation is highly encouraged. No one has all of the solutions, but everyone has something worth contributing. Your small group discussion participation will help others share, grow, and learn.
