DOVIA hosts at least one training opportunity or special event each month. Check out what we have planned through July 2016.
What are You Worth? The Volunteer Management Professional:
You know what you do is valuable. The question is: does your organization, your board, and your executive know that you are valuable?
As a professional in Volunteer Management, part of your job is marketing yourself and your program in order to sustain your position and grow your program.
Toot your own horn and share your accomplishments with your organization!

Staff Development- Delegation and Empowerment: One of the keys to building capacity in your organization is learning to delegate to volunteers. Becky Lunders of teamWorks will talk about why delegation is important and how it can help you grow programs, events and volunteers. She'll explore why it's so hard to let go and what happens when you delegate to a competent volunteer. She'll share ideas to empower volunteers without micro-managing them with the ideal of when you get out of the way, more gets done!
