Retention: Personal Fulfillment
Board Governance & Volunteer Management
DUE THURSDAY BY 8PM NEW YORK TIME 1 PAGE APA FORMAT WITH IN-TEXT CITATIONS AND REFERENCES TO UPLOADED RESOURCES AND LINK
Volunteers and board members donate their time to nonprofit organizations for different reasons. Although motivations differ, one desire is usually the same: volunteers and board members want to know that their time is being spent wisely and that the work they do matters. They also want to feel welcomed by and connected to their organizations.
To prepare for this Discussion:
- Review the article, “Managing Volunteers—When the Carrot Is Not a Paycheque.” Think about the ways in which the volunteer experience can be enhanced and how these examples can be applied to governing and nongoverning volunteers.
- Think about ways in which you might foster personal fulfillment in volunteers at your organization.
THE ASSIGNMENT With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Thursday 1-2 page APA with BE SURE TO ADD IN_TEXT CITATIONS AND REFERENCES TO UPLOADED RESOURCES AND OTHERS THAT MAY BE USED IN DEVELOPMENT: an explanation of the role of personal fulfillment in the retention of board members and nongoverning volunteers. Then, describe two ways in which you might foster personal fulfillment in board members and nongoverning volunteers in your Final Project organization.
