Engaging volunteers and cultivating a culture of caring

by The 100 Companies

Phillip E. Russo, CAE, Executive Director, Professional Management Associates, joined The A100 podcast to discuss association and workforce-related topics.

With decades of experience in associations, Phil identifies volunteer recruitment as a significant challenge for association, mainly due to a lack of time or decreased interest post-pandemic. He talks about developing systems that spoon-feed volunteers with clear expectations for the time involved. Branding matters too – serving on a committee may overwhelm some, but a working group sounds doable.

Phil also suggests using contractors to complement staff expertise and talks about strategies for a high-achieving team to ensure long-term success.
