Program content:

With many not-for-profits being asked to do more with less, reliance on volunteers has become a strategic priority of executive leadership teams and boards. Volunteers can regularly provide skills and talents lacking in organization staff or, as needed, supplement efforts for events and peak activity. While appreciated and mission critical, volunteers introduce risks. This webcast will explore the challenges and opportunities that must be considered and managed when using volunteers.
