We are getting ready for the Fall Program Director/Volunteer Coordinator Meeting on October 25th and the MOCASA Statewide Conference on October 26th, and we want to provide some additional details as you make your plans for the fall.
We are thrilled to announce that Barry Altland will be providing training on volunteer recruitment, retention and engagement. Barry Altland is the author of Engaging the Head, Heart and Hands of a Volunteer and we will provide copies for attendees. He was highly recommended by the state CASA organization in North Carolina. He will facilitate training at both the Fall Meeting and the Conference. Here is a link to his website: http://www.headhearthandsengagement.com/
We have not yet finalized the full agenda for the conference, but we plan to have training on multiple topics of interest to volunteers, board members and staff. If you have a recommendation for a topic and/or speaker, please let us know.
