New Volunteer Manager Series 2 of 3: Establishing Priorities When Volunteer Managers Wear Multiple Hats

February 14, 2019 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am

More information

It is not uncommon for volunteer managers to also be social workers, bereavement coordinators, or have other roles – especially in smaller programs. Volunteer programs contribute greatly to the patient/family experience and satisfaction scores and must comply with regulatory requirements.

While volunteer services can never be an afterthought, limited resources make it imperative that volunteer managers are efficient and effective with their time. Volunteer managers must learn to prioritize, be organized, and explore how to utilize volunteers in key positions. This timely webinar will cover these topics and focus on survival skills for volunteer managers who wear multiple hats.
