Best Practices for Engagement

Facing change has been a challenging reality in 2020 – that’s why keeping volunteer engagement at the forefront can advance your organization through these challenges. Wherever your organization is along the path to reopening or resuming standard services, there is much to navigate and consider. 

Join our guest presenter Beth Steinhorn, President of VQ Volunteer Strategies, to get useful tips on how you can adapt and engage volunteers safely and meaningfully to help achieve your mission. We’ll explore issues to consider when restarting services, share best practices in redesigning roles to address new needs and reconnect with volunteers through strategic communications, and provide tips on how to effectively manage change with your colleagues and leadership as well as with volunteers.

What you'll learn: 

  • Gain insight from research that shows engaging volunteers can help organizations adapt amid challenging times
  • How to redesign roles so you can build capacity while meeting new and different needs your organization faces
  • Tips for strategic communications when reconnecting with volunteers on hiatus
  • Best practices for effective change management through communications, teamwork, and experimentation


  • No Charge
