Be ‘newbie’-friendly to attract volunteers
you know it will be done, and it will be done right . . . right? Trust me, nobody will do it as well as you, but however they do it will be just fine.
If you really want people to help, stand back and let it happen. Nobody likes (or helps) a martyr.
Do you recognise and value volunteer contributions?
If you’ve been on a committee for decades, it’s easy to accept your role as a ‘‘thankless task’’, and as a result, it’s easy to forget to thanks others.
Volunteers ( especially new volunteers) need to know that what they do really does make a difference, and that their contribution is valued.
Just because you think they SHOULD help out, doesn’t mean they actually HAVE to. Upcoming courses: Beginner Coaching Course: May 6, 6.30pm, Morrinsville Events Centre – a great confidence builder for new or inexperienced coaches: FREE register at email@example.com
