Topic Summary. It is time to remake the volunteer management model to deal with reality: life moves fast, people have unlimited options as to how they spend their time, technology is an omnipresent force, and many aspects of the American culture work against building a sense of community. This session will address why: effective communication by the volunteer manager is essential; volunteers need to know they are valued and have something real to contribute; volunteer managers need to embrace the technology tools available to them; and to establish a loyal community of volunteers, it is vital to build long-term relationships to overcome the centrifugal forces of modern life.
