Chrissy Kissinger offers some suggestions on how to determine if a committee or a task force is needed for various issues in your organization.
Associations Now recently released an article about association trends in 2014. One of the topics featured concerned the use of volunteers, with the takeaway that long-term volunteer commitments are out and micro-volunteering is in:
“Micro-volunteering is emerging as a smart way to expand your volunteer pool and build engagement among your less connected members. Got people who can’t commit to helping plan your annual meeting, but can spend a few hours being a conference greeter? This is for them.”
The truth is, the more we enter an ever-changing, task-oriented world, people want shorter, more specific terms of volunteering.
