The Future of Strategic Planning: Changes in Volunteerism

McMenamins Kennedy School 5736 NE 33rd Ave

About this event

Volunteering today is not the same as it was twenty years ago. Rob’s presentation will look at some of the key ways in which society is changing
and how these changes affect volunteerism. However, just exploring these changes isn’t enough. Rob will also discuss what leaders of volunteers can do to update their practices to accommodate these changes, further enhancing
their engagement and retention of 21st Century volunteers.
