Working with Your Volunteers

Volunteers are the life blood for most clubs, and they are relied upon for everyday club operation.

Along with this are special club days where volunteers are asked to help out with working bees, or volunteering for events.

You will need to have a policy prearranged to deal with this to avoid issues later from members who volunteer regularly and continue to do so.

Many volunteers can easily be burnt out, and clubs often use the same volunteers time and time again. This quickly leads to those key people giving up and taking a wealth of experience with them.

Its better if you plan for your volunteers in advance and give a clear incentive so that they continue to feel valued. This can be in form of membership discount, or recognition with a "special" volunteers appreciation day.

It helps to also record the days that your volunteers contribute, and ask during the signup process if members are willing to volunteer.

If you get a system that can handle this automatically it will streamline your administration and give you a database of volunteers to draw upon as your club needs them.

Just be sure to share the workload and encourage new members to become involved in your club.

Often we have found a volunteer group can become "clicky", try and avoid this by bringing in new volunteer members and rotating roles.
