#VolunteerLove - text

Showing #VolunteerLove is a winning strategy for driving member engagement. Why? Because volunteering is the stickiest type of member engagement. We need to get beyond rewards and recognition to show #VolunteerLove. That was the message of the ASAE Membership Section Council webinar, Driving Member Engagement by Showing #VolunteerLove.
