Getting a Seat at the Table: Moving from Coordinator to Director and from Do-er to Influencer
None of our organizations are where we thought they would be a year ago, yet some organizations are still thriving through the contributions and partnership of volunteers,
while others are not. What distinguishes those organizations? One factor is that those thriving organizations truly embrace volunteer engagement as a strategy, they do so from the top down, and leaders of volunteers have a position of influence in the organizational structure. Learn from Beth Steinhorn and the experiences of your peers how to make that shift from coordinating volunteers to leading an organization-wide strategy of engagement and being a change-maker.
