Belfast. Register for the Nonprofit workshop, “Effective Use of Volunteers” to be held on Monday, March 4, 2013 with Dr. Frank Burtnett. This is the first workshop in the Nonprofit Organzation Management Certificate Program offered through the UMaine Hutchinson Center at 80 Belmont Ave., Belfast. The workshop will begin at 8:30 am and conclude at 4:00 pm and includes workshop materials, continental breakfast and lunch. The cost for the workshop is $150. Upon completion of six workshops that comprise the program, individuals will earn a Certificate in Nonprofit Organization Management from the University of Maine Hutchinson Center. You can register for any one workshop or for the series.
Volunteers are often the life-blood of the nonprofit organization, allowing it to fulfill its mission with limited expenditures for paid staff members. Every aspect of volunteer management will be examined, including volunteer identification, preparation, retention, evaluation and recognition. Finally, the blending of paid staff and volunteers will be addressed.
