In the fall of 2015, ASAE Foundation launched this research study to address the institutional aspects of volunteer management. The intent is to answer the question, “What components of a volunteer management program lead to mutual benefit between the association and the volunteer?” Phase I of this process was a survey of association staff conducted to collect data regarding association volunteer programs and measuring the associations’ satisfaction with their programs, followed by a series of qualitative interviews. The intent of this summary report is to share some high-level findings from the first survey in which 1,016 unique associations participated.
At the 2013 ASAE Annual, the ASAE Executive Management Section hosted a conversation on rebuilding the volunteer spirit. Through the eyes and stories of five associations, we explored how the changing volunteer paradigm became an opportunity to shift governance structures, change member component formats, rethink how to engage younger professionals, and rethink volunteer training.
We take a look at an association that saw a troubling trend that drove them to look closely at member engagement, member components and volunteerism.
We share our journey with the American Association of Diabetes Educators to diagnose and overcome stagnancies within its chapters without overlooking the needs of the members.
