Transforming the Volunteer Experience

2017 Annual FVA Conference

Thursday, November 2, 2017
ESC of Cuyahoga County, Independence, Ohio

Featured Keynote Presenter, Tobi Johnson, Leadership in a Changing World

New trends in brain science, demographics, technology and the workplace are disrupting business as usual and creating new opportunities to connect, collaborate and mobilize volunteers for the greater good. Neuroscience and psychology help us understand what inspires people to action and motivates continued participation.

Emerging technologies enable us to automate and personalize experiences to better meet the needs of our supporters. New management models allow us to better develop and support volunteer talent, allowing their contributions to truly shine. Our shifting demographics offer an increasing diversity of experiences and wisdom that can be tapped to bring about positive change in our communities.

As society evolves, so too does volunteerism. How will today’s societal shifts influence the needs and desires of your volunteer supporters? What can you do to address these needs both now and into the future? Join us as we explore thought-provoking cultural trends and scientific research that will transform our practice.

In this interactive, three-part workshop, you’ll engage in “big hat” thinking and lively discussions with your peers. You’ll also leave with pragmatic tactics that could make your program stronger and better.

Turning Volunteers into Donors


So which comes first—the volunteers or the donors? Did you know that 42 percent of donors first volunteered before they gave to an organization?  An average volunteer is FOUR TIMES as likely to donate as someone who doesn’t volunteer and they typically give TEN TIMES as much!  So, some of your best donor sources may already be invested in your organization by giving you that other gift…time.  What’s the risk to ask the givers of time for money, too?  It depends. We will talk about setting your volunteer program on the path of asking for it all:  time, treasure and money.  This is a great webinar for Volunteer Managers and Development Directors.

AL!VE Academy: The Importance of Writing for the Profession and IJOVA as a resource

AL!VE Academy:  The Importance of Writing for the Profession and You.  November 7, (1:00 PM Eastern)
 
What makes writing so important?  Writing is the primary basis upon which your work, your learning, and your intellect will be judged in the workplace, your community, and with your peers.
 
Writing is portable and permanent.  It makes your thinking visible.  It helps you move easily among facts, inferences, and opinions without getting confused - and without confusing your reader.  Besides being an essential job skill, writing for the profession fosters your ability to explain a complex position to readers and to yourself.
 
The AL!VE Academy for November is pleased to welcome Harriett Edwards, Ed.D. Harriett currently serves on the Board of IJOVA (The International Journal on Volunteer Administration).  For over 40 years, IJOVA has been an essential resource for the profession.  Learn more about the importance of writing, how to get started, how best to use other's professional writings, and how you can utilize the new IJOVA website as a resource.
