GMIC Chapter Webinar

Email Amanda for the presentation



Too much work, not enough people to do it. Does this dilemma have you doing everything as a volunteer? Suddenly you find yourself frustrated and resentful because you’ve spent too much time away from the office or family?


People are the engine at GMIC. As your chapter grows you need to recruit the right people to be in the right seats at the right time. In this session, you will learn success strategies for volunteer recruitment.

· BE! Honest - determine your needs and track your people

· BE! Generous - some volunteers share a skill

· BE! A learning center for volunteers who want to learn

· BE! Asking - learn tips on how to ask that will get to Yes!

· BE! Grateful - how to thank your people so they return

This session is a great resource for all GMIC volunteer leaders, whether your chapter is already established, in formation or in development.
