Care and Feeding of Volunteers 2017
Type of event: Training
Sponsor: Central East Region of the UUA
Religious Communities depend on the support of their members to conduct their religious mission in the world. Much of the work of a Congregation is conducted by volunteers, and yet too often volunteers feel they are not seen or appreciated for their dedication and support. Beyond recognition, volunteers need to be cared for and sustained in the sometimes difficult work of religious community. Our workshop will focus on strategies for recognizing, building, supporting, and sustaining the volunteers of a religious community, and how to encourage more people to want to volunteer!
This event is free, there is an optional $10 fee for lunch.
Presented by Rev. David Pyle, CER Congregational Life Staff.
Registration deadline is April 12, 2017.
