Community Futures Greenstone is planning to host Volunteer Manitoba workshops in September. Their Manager Becky Cianflone explains they’re talking to Volunteer Manitoba about the possibility of bringing in a trainer for a day to work with some of our non-profit boards and volunteer organizations just to help to equip them to do more and do better in the community.
Cianflone adds they are looking for groups that might be interested in partnering with them for these workshops. She also wants to hear from people who may be interested in these types of workshop and what topics you like to see covered. Choices being offered include roles and responsibilities of a non-profit board, dealing with difficult volunteers, social media for non-profits, minute taking made easy, efficient effective and enjoyable meetings and the three r’s – recruitment, retention and recognition. If interested you can contact the Greenstone office at 204-687-6967.
