Beyond Certificates and Plaques: Volunteer Recognition

Different people prefer different types of recognition. Some volunteers love an event while others appreciate a personalized note. Does your recognition plan cover all the needs of your volunteers? Thanking volunteers and recognizing their hard work impacts retention and can generate awareness about your program. During this webinar, we will share a variety of recognition strategies that have worked for other programs that utilize volunteers. While recognition should be ongoing, National Mentoring Month (January) and National Volunteer Week (April 21-27, 2013) provide unique opportunities to say thank you. Participants will be invited to share their favorite strategies during the webinar. For audio on this webinar, please call 1-800-201-2375. The pass code is 618-801.
