Cause Oregon, in partnership with Northeast Oregon Economic Development District, is offering a comprehensive series of seminars this spring to sharpen the skills of nonprofit boards and staff. Whether you're new to the sector or a seasoned professional, the series will provide practical tools for your work.
Classes are stand-alone modules and also build a nonprofit toolkit sequentially. Participants can attend any number of sessions at $35 each, or register for all ten at a discounted rate of $295. Seating is limited; pre-registration is required. Fees are not refundable but can be credited for future sessions.
This week's session is on Volunteer Recruitment. Do you have as many volunteers as you need? Are your volunteers energetic, loyal, dependable and skilled? Volunteers are unpaid staff for nonprofits and as such, present unique challenges with regards to personnel management. In this session, we'll explore recruitment tactics for attracting and retaining the most engaged volunteers. We'll also cover the characteristics of stellar volunteer programs and ways to maximize their contributions to our organizations.
