thanks for the article Lee - I'd like to learn more about motivating volunteers in an organization that depends on them to keep itself going....we can't throw more money at them, or take it away either...and I have a tough time getting them together just for routine organizational meetings let alone strategic planning sessions!

Ginger, great topic. With volunteers the currency obviously can't be money. Instead, we have to reply on what we should be relying on even when we have money as a motivator. That would include articulating a vision that is engaging, important and personal; being enthusiastic and positive as leaders; asking for help in ways that are doable and match volunteers' skills, interests and situation; sharing ownership; expecting accountability in a straightforward and non-threatening way; keeping volunteers "in the loop" and informed volunteers; reporting progress and "wins" on a consistent basis; and praising and recognizing those who are doing the work. I'll make this a topic for a future blog post because of its importance not just to non-profits but to any organization.


Thanks Lee! I will try to put this into practice as I round out the last few months of my term as president. Great advice!
