Free Expert Webinar: Converting Volunteers From Joiners to Stayers

Lori Halley 17 March 2015 2 comments

Has your organization become a revolving door for disappointed volunteers seeking a better fit elsewhere?  

Is it because you’ve neglected a critical stage of the volunteer life cycle – volunteer onboarding?

Tobi Johnson believes that when done successfully, your volunteer onboarding process can help new volunteers find a comfortable and stimulating place to support their association or non-profit.

Volunteer Onboarding: Converting Joiners to Stayers

In our upcoming Wild Apricot Expert Webinar, Tobi Johnson will help you understand what drives volunteer satisfaction, particularly that of highly skilled volunteers. The session will explore how volunteer motivation and needs change as they progress through levels of engagement. In addition, we’ll share a list of volunteer orientation “must haves” and how to design an onboarding process that speeds up engagement and promotes a strong sense of leadership in your team.

In this webinar we’ll learn:

  • What motivates today’s skilled volunteers
  • Why onboarding is all about emotions and expectations
  • Why all volunteers shouldn’t be treated the same
  • How to improve key touch points for volunteers throughout the screening, matching, orientation, and training processes
  • How to promote volunteer leadership through peer-to-peer knowledge sharing
