Managing Volunteers

For most of us, each year we get a new chairman with their ideas and set of priorities that may or may not align with the current program of work of your organization.

I think we all can agree that if you have a challenging volunteer it can make for a long year.

We all (volunteers and staff) come to the table with different personalities, strengths and weaknesses.

Open communication is the key!  If you keep your lines of communication open and transparent, your organization will be better off for it.

There are resources available that may help with this volunteer/staff relationship.  I am especially fond of the work the Tecker International folks have accumulated on the subject matter through seminars and publications.

Don’t ignore it.  Address it with open communication.
