Kathleen McCleskey and Wendy Biro-Pollard have been collaborating with ACC’s Center for Nonprofit Studies for over a decade. During this time, they have conducted highly rated, four-day courses that provide managers of volunteer resources with state-of-the art, professional development training.
This year, due to COVID-19, the course is going online. Participants will engage in lecture, discussions and have opportunities for networking and creative problem solving. They will be given a participant manual filled with checklists and best practice resources–all drawn from Kathleen and Wendy’s careers as practitioners and nationally recognized experts in the field of volunteer engagement.
This course will benefit anyone in the nonprofit, association, and governmental sector who seeks to learn how to build a successful volunteer program. Participants will discover the latest volunteer management trends including how to engage and support virtual and remote volunteers. They will learn key steps in the volunteer management process and develop skills and techniques that are useful to any organizational leader.
All sessions have been recognized by the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration and will cover the Council’s Core Competencies for Managers of Volunteer Resources.
(online, live & interactive)
The Certificate in Volunteer Management will be conducted over six half-days and will include homework assignments.
Upon completion, participants will earn a Certificate of Completion and 2.8 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from Austin Community College. These may be eligible for use in meeting professional certification requirements.
