Developing the Top Volunteer Talent Needed to Survive and Thrive
Baby Boomers and the generations that follow seek meaningful and high impact volunteer opportunities, and their knowledge and skills are needed more than ever to help orchestras survive and thrive in today’s economy. When volunteers are engaged as partners in the work of orchestras and share the ownership of their survival and success, their work becomes a tipping point – an irresistible invitation for others to join the effort. This seminar is geared for those who want to develop top volunteer talent for their orchestras. Attendees will learn how to attract and engage those capable of partnering with staff to address critical challenges and focus volunteer efforts on the most pressing organizational priorities and community needs. Participants will learn new approaches to volunteer engagement and the skills necessary to access, leverage and retain volunteer expertise across the generations.
