December AL!VE Academy: Modern Trends in Volunteer Engagement: Looking Back at 2020 and Forward to 2021 2:30 - 4:00 PM E

Friday, December 4 - 2:30 -4:00 PM Eastern

Modern Trends in Volunteer Engagement:  Looking Back at 2020 and Forward to 2021
 
It would be an understatement to say that 2020 has been a difficult year.  In the midst of it, though, volunteer engagement professionals have rallied.  There has been a surge of professional development opportunities from colleagues who are willing to share and to listen.  As we close out 2020 and hope for a better year ahead, how can we take all that we have learned since March when normal came to a halt and apply it to our work moving forward?  We will discuss how to set boundaries and say no when needed, to create work plans and strategic plans that can help you tackle your to do list and communicate your value to senior leaders, and expand your capacity by building teams to support mutually beneficial goals. 

About the Presenter:
Kelli will host a panel of colleagues.
 Kelli Crawford
  North Carolina, South Eastern Region
  Volunteer Coordinator and Curator of Collections, Greensboro Science Center

  A North Carolina native, Kelli earned a Bachelor's and a Master's in History with a focus on Museum Studies. She originally envisioned working in a history museum but was bitten by the volunteer management bug when she interned for the Greensboro Science Center.   When offered a full time position to stay on at the GSC after completing her Master's, she jumped at the chance because it meant continuing to work with the GSC volunteers.  Those volunteers trusted Kelli to lead them and they taught her a lot along the way. In seven years, she has grown the corps of volunteers by 300%, built a talented team in the Volunteer Office and doubled her budget. That growth has been a product of hard work from her staff and volunteers as well as advocacy for the volunteer management profession both within her organization and at a national level through her work on the Volunteer Management Committee with the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. She is especially passionate about advocating for the profession because she remembers what it was like to be a new volunteer manager who struggled at the onset. Kelli wants to help new and veteran volunteer managers build on their successes, overcome their challenges and elevate the profession.
