Recruiting & Retaining Volunteers - with a twist!
Tuesday 21 May 2019, 6pm - 8.30pm
Do you find it hard to attract and retain volunteers? What makes them tick and why are they so different? This fun workshop will give you a different perspective about how to gain new members and volunteers. Participants will learn the generational expectations of the volunteer experience, volunteer rights and responsibilities, how to attract younger volunteers, and future-proof your organisation by doing a few things differently.
RSVP by 14 May 2019 on 9290 6678 or firstname.lastname@example.org
For information on what other training workshops will be available see the Volunteer Training 2019 flyer.
The Shire recognises the unique contribution made by volunteers, sporting and other community organisations. As a volunteer, sporting or other non-profit community organisation within the Shire of Mundaring, you are invited to apply to for a Shire grant to support an event that recognises your group's importance to the local community. Funding is available for two types of events.
The Shire can contribute $300 to volunteer, sporting or other not-for-profit organisations, to assist in holding an event that recognises the contribution they and their members have made to the local community. Ten organisations will receive financial support each year.
If your organisation has reached a major milestone in its history or development, you may be eligible for Milestone Event funding. The Shire allocates $2500 annually towards an event that recognises the efforts of an organisation's members. Funding is only available for one organisation per year.
