Case Study: Board Development--View, Voice, Vote and Veto: Engaging Your Volunteers at the Appropriate Level

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Whether your fundraising program is under the oversight of an independent board of directors or you simply enlist a committee of volunteers to assist your fundraising efforts, it is essential to have clearly defined expectations of volunteer roles and responsibilities.  Often, volunteer committees morph into board-like fiduciary responsibilities… and the volunteers then become angered when the organization attempts to “rein them in.”  This session will look at the different levels of volunteer engagement, determine some appropriate boundaries, and discuss strategies for communicating those boundaries to your volunteers.

In this session you will learn to:

Clearly identify and understand the type of volunteer board that your organization has

Develop appropriate boundaries, roles and responsibilities for your volunteers

Communicate those boundaries to your volunteers in a way that sustains their relationship to the organization
