AL!VE Communities of Practice 1/23/19 - Rural Communities 3 PM Eastern, 12 Noon Pacific
Volunteer Engagement Professionals in small towns face unique challenges and opportunities that aren’t always addressed by advice intended for city-based audiences.
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.
Join us for our next virtual gathering via GoToMeeting or by phone on January 23, 2019 at 3pm EST / Noon PST to meet peers from other areas of the country, ask questions, and share ideas.

AL!VE Academy January 30, 2019 @ 2 PM Eastern: Playing the Board Game: Engaging High-Level Executives In Your Volunteer-Supported Organization
January 30, 2019 @ 2 PM Eastern
“Playing the Board Game: Engaging High-Level Executives In Your Volunteer-Supported Organization”
As a Leader of Volunteer Engagement, you may have the opportunity to work closely with executive-level or highly skilled professionals who choose to serve alongside your organization. They may be Board members, group leaders, liaisons, virtual volunteers, and even frontline, hands-on volunteers.
What unique strategies are required to engage this category of volunteer? Of what do you need to be aware to ensure their contributions are meaningful and mutually beneficial? What should you do differently to ensure a seasoned professional who is volunteering sustains their engagement?
The answers to these questions may not be what you have been led to believe. And, at times, the solutions are doing more of what you may already know to deepen their engagement.
Join published author, speaker, non-profit executive and consultant Barry Altland for this one-hour session that immerses learners in philosophical and tactical strategies to elevate your leadership acumen. The highly interactive virtual workshop will impart knowledge and skills to help you more effectively play the “Board Game.”

AL!VE Academy Partner Webinar: Finding the right questions to get the right answers for recruiting volunteers! Presented by VSys One
Volunteer leadership is a challenging and rewarding career field. Until you are in the role, you cannot completely comprehend what it is, and your role continually changes. Volunteer leaders are both a mystery and a phenomenon. Navigating the role and the “loose expectations” is often left up to you, the volunteer leader. You are often allowed to define your role and expected to produce proof you are succeeding. If we don’t ask the right questions, we will never get the right answers. This very brief “tour of the volunteer process” seeks to ask if you can communicate to your community the true impact your volunteers provide. This is an opportunity to look beyond the age-old questions typically asked of volunteer leaders: ï‚· How many volunteers did you have last year? ï‚· And how many hours did they serve? Volunteering is about people, the mission and impact this partnership has on a community. Volunteer leaders should be able to tell the story. Discover how you can tell your success story and be able to impact real decision-making in your organization!
