Tips for Building Volunteer Engagement – Facilitated by Linda Reindl
Associations are only as strong as their volunteer membership.  Sometimes the real challenge is not recruiting volunteers but it is how to keep them engaged.  We all have the members that are always willing to jump in and help but how do we cultivate new members, keep them engaged while not burning out the seasoned members.  Volunteer engagement should be a part of your on-going strategies.  This session will offer some tips to help you be successful along with session time to discuss things that are working for you!  Come ready to share!

Where Does Change Begin?
Bronwyn Hoffman, Bronwyn Hoffman & Associates, MA, MST, MCC
As leaders of our associations, we are constantly tasked with managing change and solving problems. Recently, association managers have been forced into many changes in a rapid period of time. How do we manage employee anxiety when we don’t know the answers ourselves? Bronwyn Hoffman will address the subject of maintaining positive mental health and successful life balance. Her coaching focuses on balancing the cognitive and emotional aspects within the business of leadership brain health.
