The "America, Let's Do Lunch™" campaign is sending thousands of volunteer prospects each month directly to local programs like yours all across the county. Converting these prospects into dedicated volunteers, however, can represent a challenge for many programs when considering the daily business of getting meals out, fundraising and the like – not to mention sometimes unresponsive volunteer prospects. Led by programs that have a track record of stellar volunteer conversion, this webinar will offer solutions to daily challenges as well as best practices for streamlining the volunteer onboarding process. Join us for a chance to hear from your peers while asking and answering questions that will help us all bring our volunteer conversion to a new level.
