Ideas and approaches to get you thinking about developing your volunteer strategy.

“Do you need a volunteer strategy?

As volunteer managers, there are always a hundred and one things to do. You may think that you do not have the time to develop a strategy. However, the hundred and one things may be an indicator that you need a strategy. Rather than spend time and effort to fix things in a piecemeal fashion, it may be more beneficial to take a strategic response. This can help you to manage things in a more co-ordinated manner. Importantly, it will identify if you have the necessary resources to achieve the desired developments. And make the argument for getting them if you don’t. Think also of your strategy as an opportunity to promote and raise the visibility of your volunteering.”
