Navigating Difficult Situations: Effective Solutions for Everyday Challenges
Volunteers who over commit and under deliver. Individuals who don’t follow protocols – but never in front of you. A colleague who resists working with volunteers. A Board member who views volunteers as merely free labor. We all encounter difficult situations at some point. Add in the challenge of hundreds of unique personalities, and we are bound to encounter sticky situations on a regular basis. Learn how to address some of the most common challenging situations, gain strategies to avoid such situations in the future, take the emotion out of tricky conversations, and protect your organization’s best interests while getting the most out of volunteer contributions.


About our Presenter:
Beth Steinhorn, President, VQ Volunteer Strategies
Beth partners with organizations and their leadership to increase their impact through strategic and innovative engagement. The author of multiple books and articles on strategic volunteer engagement, she is a popular speaker and trainer, known for her interactive and inspiring presentations. As a thought leader, Beth regularly participates in the national dialogue about volunteerism and engagement. As a Service Enterprise Trainer, she has also trained and supported dozens of organizations to become certified Service Enterprises.

Rural Community of Practice 
Volunteer Engagement Professionals in small towns face unique challenges and opportunities that aren’t always addressed by advice intended for city-based audiences. There are also fewer opportunities to connect with others doing similar work across the country. That’s what led to the creation of AL!VE’s Community of Practice (CoP) for volunteer engagement professionals in rural communities.
2021 Meetings will be held:  Jan 19, March 16, May 18, July 20, September 21 & November 16. 

For more information, contact Rebeccah Verhoff-Kiss, Rural COP Facilitator
