Now What? Emerging Strategies for Leading Volunteers
Session description:
Volunteerism is facing a unique set of circumstances: A decades-long decline in volunteer engagement was exacerbated by the 2020 pandemic, and new conditions are shaping the volunteerism landscape as volunteers, and groups engaging volunteers, adapt to a post-pandemic environment. Join the Minnesota Alliance for Volunteer Advancement (MAVA) to explore findings from "Post-Pandemic Volunteerism: Trends and Strategies for Volunteer Engagement in 2023 and Beyond." MAVA’s latest field-based research uncovered eight emerging trends shaping the current volunteerism landscape and provides key recommendations for taking charge of changing conditions, and elevating volunteer engagement. In this session, you will gain a better understanding of factors shaping today’s volunteer response, explore how emerging trends can guide development of new tactics for engaging volunteers, and leave with actionable strategies to lead innovation in volunteerism at your organization or initiative.
