Last Years' Conference

Customer Service: Delivering A Quality Volunteer Experience



Volunteers as Customers

Emilie Shoop

Now more than ever, attracting and keeping volunteers requires considering their needs and never taking them for granted. This keynote will help you think strategically about your organization’s relationship with volunteers, including trends in volunteering, what motivates volunteers, and how a bit of “customer service” can help
you keep them engaged.

Amy Beadle


“RE” Think Your View
