Irresistible Organizations and Supportive Environments: Keeping Volunteers and Attracting Their Friends & GAVA Annual Meeting

October 6, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us for GAVA’s 2022 Annual Meeting, which includes a presentation by industry leader Kayla Paulsen:

Irresistible Organizations and Supportive Environments: Keeping Volunteers and Attracting Their Friends

We all know that there is no closet of volunteers waiting to connect and serve your organization, but we do have a captive audience with our current volunteers and need to maximize that potential. Together we will explore the assets your organization already has, identify low-hanging fruit for some quick wins, and workshop an approach to help create an even more supportive environment for staff, volunteers, and clients to thrive together!

Collaborative Members who are interested in attending, please email Cobb Collaborative Executive Director Irene Barton to be added to the list. 

 *** More About the Session ***

I love both Deloitte’s Simply Irresistible Organization Model and reDirect’s Supportive Environments for Effectiveness (SEE) Framework, in this session we overlap these two research-based models and spin in an asset-based approach to identifying some small changes that can help build momentum with quick wins to build support from staff and volunteers to keep challenging the status quo. We will jump-start the session by reviewing the concepts and quickly put them into action with an individual organization self-assessment and small group share out of the assets already in place. Then we will go a little deeper and talk through the concepts and in breakout rooms identify small changes that will help their environment be supportive and irresistible to all of their human capital. We will wrap it up by leveraging a SEE approach to keep exploring, testing, and galvanizing small tweaks to create a talked-about organization that has word-of-mouth recruitment coming from staff, volunteers, and clients.

Best regards,
Georgia Association for Volunteer Administration
