VANtage: June 2018

Written by nlyons29 on . Posted in Home Page


In my professional career I have learned that change is a constant. With change comes challenges, but also opportunities. I have learned how to overcome the challenges and embraced the opportunities. I have seized the opportunities to engage volunteers in new ways, to elevate their value with-in the organization, and to celebrate their success. What is important during a time of change is communication. Keeping volunteers informed, but also excited about the new opportunities and the direction of the organization.

The June meeting will focus on “Marketing to Volunteers”. We will learn key steps in how to communicate and promote our programs and opportunities to volunteers and the community. I am looking forward to picking up tips in engaging volunteers in the conversation and hearing from our own members on how they market their programs. I hope you will join us for this great networking and learning opportunity and then again in July as we step into the role of volunteers and support the mission of “My Very Own Blanket”.
