Navigating New Waters
Our mission is to foster excellence in association volunteerism, leadership and member communities.
September 15-October 15 marks National Hispanic Heritage Month. If you haven’t had a chance to hear the voices and check out the stories of Hispanic/Latinx association pros, check out the story project at ASAE.
With 2021 winding down, what’s ahead for chapters? COVID will still be “a thing” and, for some, budgets will still be in flux. We can expect there will be challenges and new opportunities galore.
Mariner Management president Peggy Hoffman recently sat down with Carol Hamilton on her podcast Mission: Impact to talk about the heart and soul of associations: the volunteer.
In our first post, we introduced a way to shift your volunteer training to one that focuses on the person not the position. Our second post talked about how to build a volunteer matrix based on the 5 basic learning and development levels.
In the last post, we gave you an overview of how the volunteer learning journey concept was developed as well as how it can help your volunteers take charge of their training thus leading to more qualified volunteer leaders.
Our volunteers are motivated. There’s no question there. They begin their volunteer journey enthusiastic, energized, elated to be involved in something they truly believe in.
Mariner Management & Marketing is your partner in helping association volunteers and staff create the greatest possible value for your members and in ensuring the long term health and growth of your association.
