Learn to be a better volunteer

The first two workshops will also give participants the option of attending a full day session

The Campbell River Volunteer Society in partnership with the Campbell River Community Foundation will be holding three workshops this fall in our North Island Board Institute series in support of non-profit organizations.

The first two workshops will also give participants the option of attending a full day session which includes a networking lunch as part of our National Volunteer Manager’s Day celebrations!

On Nov. 5 they will bring Coordinating Volunteers in the Digital Age to the Maritime Heritage Centre.  Whether your volunteers are separated by geographical distance or you’re simply trying to find money and time saving ways to train or connect with your volunteers, it pays to look at how technology can help.

There are dozens of free and low-cost tools that non-profits can use to train, communicate and collaborate with volunteers.  Beth Cougler Blom, who is currently an Instructional Designer at Royal Roads University and has her own business as well as a background in Training and Outreach at Volunteer Victoria, will facilitate the workshop and explore these options with you.

On Nov. 5 will be a workshop on Fabulous Facilitation, also at the Maritime Heritage Centre.

This hands-on workshop is packed with innovative ice breakers, group games and team energizers to freshen up your repertoire!  Interactive and dynamic, this workshop will give participants a plethora of new resources and ideas.

The facilitator, Jocelin Caldwell owns and operates Possibilities Training and Coaching Group, specializing in team development, group facilitation and experiential learning.  She has facilitated team workshops for corporate groups, non-profit organizations, government agencies, community centres and educators.

The final workshop in the series will be on New Accounting Standards and Budgeting Techniques for Not-for-Profit Organizations on Wed., Nov. 28 at the Enterprise Centre boardroom.

This workshop will provide an overview of the new accounting standards applicable to not-for-profit organizations that have recently been implemented along with some guidelines.  Additionally, budgeting techniques for Executive Directors and Board members will be discussed along with some interactive examples.

This will also encompass how to read financial statements and what to look for.  Kent Moeller, a chartered accountant and partner in the local accounting firm Moeller & Company will facilitate this session.

Space is limited.  Workshops are $35 each for member agencies of Volunteer Campbell River, $50. for non members.  To register or for more information, contact Volunteer Campbell River at 250-287-8111 or email Louise@volunteercr.ca.
