One of the responsibilities of today’s volunteer managers is to protect the organization. All personnel, whether paid or unpaid, present a certain degree of potential risk. As “risk managers,” it is necessary for volunteer managers to be effective communicators, program evaluators, conflict managers, coaches, and leaders. However, trying to eliminate all potential risk often leads to boring and ineffective volunteer programs. This webinar will address the volunteer manager’s role in assessing and managing potential risks, and also explore ways to balance risk with creativity and excitement.
