If you only have room for one book about Volunteer Management on your bookshelf, it needs to be this one! Ingerfair's "Volunteer Management - Why and How" is a comprehensive textbook, which will give you a deep understanding of how to develop sustainable volunteer environments.
The book will help you:
Develop sustainable volunteer environments where volunteer turnover is balanced.
Analyze the interrelationship between your type of organization and the type of volunteers most attracted to it.
Discover general approaches, models and tools for use in your own practice in leading volunteers.
The authors take you step-by-step through a template for creating what they call a sustainable volunteer environment, connecting your organizational management model, recruitment, retention, and leadership of volunteers so you can incorporate volunteer resources strategically and successfully. Practical and easy to follow, the book frequently provides a new perspective on established principles.
Although published in Denmark, "Volunteer Management – How and Why?" applies to anyone who works with volunteers, who wants to accomplish work via volunteer engagement, or looks to raise the quality and efficiency of their work. Prior to translating this book, the publisher consulted skilled volunteer resources managers and others experienced in working with volunteers in different countries and found that the theories and models in this book are applicable around the world.
