The Impact of Touchpoints on Volunteer Recruitment (New York Metro)

On-Demand Content
Overview

Revitalize your leadership development efforts to build a strong volunteer pipeline.

If your chapter faces a shortage of volunteers ready and willing to step up to leadership positions, you are not alone. Before the pandemic hit, the New York Metro chapter was challenged with a shallow leadership pool due to a dwindling pipeline of volunteers in line to serve on their board. The problem was exacerbated during COVID, when the lack of in-person networking events made it even more difficult to engage volunteers and identify potential leaders. Hear how they developed a plan to ensure the ongoing strength of their volunteer pipeline through engaging virtual events, an inclusive structure, leveraging National Volunteer Week, and targeted outreach and communications.

Overview

Global events make an indelible impact on the New York Metro Chapter. The story of their journey towards addressing inclusivity in their design community is only just beginning.

Teams Work! Engaging Your Members Through Committees (Illinois)

On-Demand Content
Overview

Leverage the power of your community through committees.

There was an “aha moment” when the Illinois chapter board found themselves burnt out from doing all the work of the chapter, including events' management. Of course the board will end up doing all the work if they don’t provide other volunteers with “on ramps” to get involved and take on new responsibilities. This epiphany led to the creation of a more effective chapter committee structure, incorporating new systems for operations and accountability to form nineteen active committees. Learn how your chapter can strengthen its committee structure to more effectively delegate the work of the chapter and build your volunteer leadership pipeline in the process.
