Posted By Denise McMahan, CausePlanet, Tuesday, August 20, 2013

So many of us find ourselves explaining to others why we work in the nonprofit sector. There's a higher purpose that gets us out of bed every morning and keeps us at the desk well after five.

Volunteer Louisiana Seminar Presentations Made Available

Posted By Volunteer Louisiana, Monday, August 12, 2013

As part of the Volunteer Fair held August 10 in Baton Rouge, LANO and Volunteer Louisiana hosted two one-hour workshops: Volunteer Management 101 and Volunteer Recruitment

Clearly one hour devoted to each of these topics barely begins to scratch the surface, but the time offered an opportunity to present key concepts and highlight some best practices. 

We were gratified that so many stayed to attend the workshops on a Saturday afternoon in downtown Baton Rouge, representing both nonprofit organizations and state government.  Many professionals shared their own great practices for recruiting and retaining valuable volunteers. 

The positive feedback has encouraged us to plan additional workshops, perhaps longer and more in-depth, throughout the state. Stay tuned as we work out those details.

Workshop materials from Saturday's events have been attached and are also posted to Volunteer Louisiana's LANO member page.
