Thank you Northern Virginia Association for Volunteer Administration (NVAVA) for the opportunity to present the topic "Corporate Social Responsibility: Making it Work for Your Organization's Volunteer Program" to your members. I enjoyed sharing a topic I'm passionate about and hope it fueled some thought while exposing participants to a new perspective that furthers their pursuit of corporate volunteer engagement. Let's ensure our paths cross again in the near future.
Poll for the room: what training/professional development have you offered your volunteers? I'm at a homeless shelter and I'd like to offer a quarterly training for interested volunteers, such as in REVIVE (NARCAN) training, Difficult Conversations, etc.

If you could host a training for your vols, what would it be?

Volunteer Management Progress Report 11/07/2019

Volunteer Management Progress Report

Your opinion matters! The fifth annual Volunteer Management Progress Reports survey is now open. This survey, done by Volunteer Pro (https://volpro.net/) collects vital information from volunteer managers across the country. This year's focus is "benchmarking" in an effort to prove information on understanding baselines in order for nonprofits to plan and implement solid strategies around volunteer engagement. Questions will dive deeper into some key themes, such as top challenges for leaders of volunteers, training requirements for volunteers, current capacity levels of volunteer organizations, average ratio of volunteers to direct supervisor, and technology use and trends.

Please take a moment to share your thoughts by taking this short survey and pass along to your constituents to do the same.
