Volunteer managers often have a lot to do and have very little time to accomplish the tasks at hand. That’s why a volunteer base is so important to volunteer managers. Volunteers are often utilized to help organizations complete tasks that would otherwise seem unachievable. But how is it that volunteer managers are able to get so much done with and through volunteers? It’s through delegation. Delegation may seem like a simple concept, but it can actually be much more difficult that one might think. This hands on workshop will explore essential information volunteer managers need to know to better understand their role in delegating tasks to volunteers.

In this session, participants will discover barriers to effective delegation, best practices in delegation for effective volunteer management, learn about appropriate volunteer delegation tasks, and gain insight about responsibilities volunteer managers hold.

MSU Extension is pleased to offer professional development opportunities designed to assist youth development program staff and volunteer administrators in their efforts to provide quality volunteer management.

Lunch and snacks will be provided. An email will be sent to participants one week prior to the session confirming attendance and providing any additional instructions. Casual dress is appropriate.

MSU Extension Staff and AmeriCorps Members $25.00
Non MSU Extension Staff or AmeriCorps Members $50.00
