Utilizing Volunteer Skills to Build Organizational Capacity

In order to reach and serve their clients, smart nonprofits utilize every available resource. They strive to fully engage their boards, seek new ways to connect with the community, cultivate new donors and provide customer-focused client services. These nonprofits also effectively utilize volunteer skills and talents to meet their organization’s challenges and leverage its opportunities.

In this half-day session, participants will explore ways to
