Call to Order: 6PM
– Initial discussion about the mission and focus of the committee
– Good database of perspective volunteers, active volunteers and alumni already in system with volunteer coordinator, KW.
– Detailed discussion on how to handle new volunteers in regards to placement and matching of talent, skills and experience.
– Speculated about the duties of a development director in reference to the recruitment and/or training of new volunteers. CD cautions us that the development director will probably be concerned mostly with fund-raising.
– CD suggests that the volunteer committee resurrects and revamps a previous Volunteer Handbook. He will search for an old copy/template.
– Related documents , such as the orientation sign-up sheet, should be modified and refined to better gauge the applicants’ commitment and enthusiasm as an active volunteer.
– A Code of Conduct (behavior) to be included in handbook.
– Also need to establish a set of standards and expectations for perspective volunteers.
