Common Good VT is pleased to partner with Kentucky Nonprofit Network to present this shared webinar. Please email [email protected] with any questions about the event.

Join KNN and Serve Kentucky for a virtual event discussing the latest volunteer management best practices, including strategies specific for recruiting, managing, and retaining volunteers in your disaster preparedness plans, and for those recently impacted, your nonprofit’s ongoing disaster relief efforts.

Our agenda includes a keynote presentation from the team at Hands On Nashville on the latest in volunteer management best practices and engagement that includes key lessons learned from volunteer management during past disaster responses, as well as strategies for developing a community-based approach for both proactive and reactive disaster response collaboration. A panel of nonprofit leaders fresh from disasters in Western and Eastern Kentucky will join us to share their lessons learned, successes, and challenges from their own recent experiences. And we’ll conclude our virtual event with a short presentation by Serve Kentucky, our state service commission, on their volunteer management platforms and how they can help your nonprofit connect with volunteers, including sharing disaster-related volunteer opportunities.
