“Volunteer Paradise”: Oxymoron or SHRM Leadership Imperative?

2013 Leadership Conference

Imagine Volunteer Paradise…your chapter full of highly engaged volunteers who are satisfied, energized & productive…they take initiative, step up to get the work done and consistently follow through on projects. Sound too good to be true in these topsy-turvy times? It’s not! If you are looking for real-world strategies for moving your volunteer team toward full engagement, then please join Vicki Hess at the Closing Luncheon. Hess will share three must haves for engaging volunteers: 1) embracing engagement, 2) creating positive connections with volunteers and 3) supporting and maintaining ongoing action. At the end of this interactive, engaging & enlightening keynote, not only will you feel refreshed & inspired...you'll also have a proven methodology for creating a culture of high engagement for yourself and other volunteers. Through humor, interactive exercises and story telling you will receive solid take-away tools for use throughout your volunteer leadership tenure.
