Planning or Transforming Your Museum Volunteer Program Infrastructure
Wednesday, Dec. 5
2-3:30 p.m. (ET)
Museum volunteers are critical resources in supporting visitor services, program functions and other aspects of museum work. Having a solid volunteer program infrastructure is essential to successfully planning for and managing these valued museum volunteers.
This 90-minute webinar addresses key elements of a volunteer program infrastructure including: purpose, planning/updating, job design for managers and volunteers, policies and procedures, and assessment of volunteers and the program.
Presenters will guide participants through analysis of a volunteer program, and frame the volunteer program strategic plan, goals and metrics for continuous improvement.
