October 2018 Chapter Meeting: Project Managing in a Volunteer Environment – Slovenija Folkorama Pavilion

October 2018 Chapter Meeting: Project Managing in a Volunteer Environment – Slovenija Folkorama Pavilion

 Have you ever wondered how some volunteer based initiatives run so smoothly, and others not so smoothly? In the volunteer world we do not call the leaders ‘Project Managers’, but many times we ask people to do the exact work that a Project Manager would perform. Come listen and learn as this presentation, and the speaker, takes you on a journey of Project Managing in a volunteer environment. Discover how managing volunteers is different (and the same) from managing resources on our work projects. Learn the nuances of how to get buy in from volunteers such that they can succeed in their endeavors. Finally, discover the satisfaction in seeing people grow, and mentoring them in a way, such that they can become the next ‘Project Managers’ in your organization.
