Learn how to get more members proactively engaged with your association through developing and implementing successful volunteer management strategies and processes.
The ASAE Foundation research raised association execs’ eyebrows with the finding that, on average, 25% of the labour hours in associations come from volunteers. The research also confirmed that members who volunteer, stay longer. This finding gives associations hope.
Other global research hints at some of the challenges, namely engaging the new volunteer. This volunteer, while still driven by passion, is looking for a different experience. Join us for deep dive to learn how you can put the findings of the research and trends to work in your association, so you can move your mission and meet members need.

You will leave with a program guide and examples in practice and ideas. You will also:
