AL!VE - Event Information

Event Name:AL!VE Local Association Leadership Professional Development: Best Practices in Volunteer Engagement in Support of Succession Planning
Description:Best Practices in Volunteer Engagement in Support of Succession Planning

September 16, 3 PM Eastern - 4:30 PM Eastern

This webinar is intended for leadership in Local Associations of Volunteer Engagement Professionals.

We are leaders of volunteer engagement. This workshop will explore how ‘best practices’ we apply to our volunteer engagement programs can be applied when staffing the leadership of our local professional associations.
This interactive session will focus on four areas: personal stories regarding the application of best practices as applied to volunteering with local associations; ways AL!VE can support local associations; examples from a local association regarding successful efforts related to succession planning; and finally, a personal exercise for each participant – applying  the session discussions to identify one goal/action item that you can take back to your local association.

Presented by Gerald (Jerry Pannozzo, CVA and the Local Associations Committee 

Gerald (Jerry) Pannozzo, CVA: Jerry is an outlier, but he made an intentional career change to volunteer administration. This followed his volunteer experiences that have influenced his  approach to engaging volunteers – both where he has worked, and his work with professional associations.  Those professional associations have been local, national, international, and one local political club’s board. Jerry attained leadership positions after or while serving on committees for the above-mentioned associations. Jerry currently serves on the NYAVA board, as the chair of the Membership Committee, and is in his fourth year serving on the Nominating Committee. He is also an active member of the AL!VE Local Associations Committee. Jerry has been doing educational workshops, trainings, and teaching for over 15 years across multiple platforms.
