They're Not A Frill If You're Using Them Right: How to Save Money and Get More Done Using High-Skill Volunteers

This workshop will help nonprofit agencies discover how to make the most of high-skill volunteers--those lawyers, public-relations specialists, accountants and other professionals who are increasingly interested in donating their expertise. We'll explore: how to identify major projects on which volunteers can be helpful; how to integrate them into those projects; how to smooth relations between staff and volunteers, and make paid personnel more effective in deploying and supervising their unpaid counterparts; when to consider volunteers for leadership positions, including the Board of Directors; and how to keep them motivated (using "The Big MAC approach") so you can truly rely on them.
