Volunteer Recruitment and Retention

Register here!

Tuesday, February 9
8:30 AM ā€“ 12:00 PM
College Building, Room 106, 2155 College Avenue, Regina

Volunteering should be a mutually beneficial — and fun — experience. This session will explore how to successfully recruit, manage and retain volunteers. Participants will get an overview on how to stay organized, how to set expectations, volunteer appreciation and how to build a successful team by highlighting individual strengths. There will be plenty of opportunities to explore specific organization volunteer successes and challenges so if you like, come prepared to share.

Melanie Metcalf has been the Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator with the Regina Folk Festival for 6 years. With a volunteer population of over 650 individuals she has had the pleasure to learn that there is a job for everyone and everyone can contribute. In the not-for-profit sector, turnover is common in volunteer management and so with her years of experience she has been fortunate enough to continually improve, develop and maintain a successful volunteer program in ways many haven’t been able to.
