MALF Hosts "Making New Friends" Noon Wednesday!

Friends of the Library live and die by the strength of their volunteer pipeline. When new volunteers seem to be in short supply, then, it is rightfully a cause for concern.

Join us this Wednesday for “Making New Friends,” a jam-packed webinar about how to find, recruit, onboard and motivate the very best volunteers in your community.

Beth Steinhorn, president of Colorado-based VQ Volunteer Strategies, will lead this 90-minute session. In her decades of consulting, Steinhorn has aided not-for-profits as varied as the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, American Red Cross, and Meals on Wheels. Past clients in the library sphere include the Public Library Association (PLA) and California Library Association.

In addition to the training seminar, participants will come away with valuable sample and rubric documents from VQ: boilerplate volunteer position descriptions, a targeted recruitment primer, and samples of strategic messaging, to name a few.

Best of all, “Making New Friends” is free to attend.
 Registration is required – though open until one hour before the start of the 12:00-1:30 CDT event.
