It stresses the concept that many prospective members shop for a club that fits their interests and your club needs to be the one they choose.

Stop Recruiting / Start Attracting

Stop Recruiting Start Attracting
This book is about change and membership in Rotary clubs. Membership is critical for all service clubs. These new members must include a mix of younger, middle aged and older members. The key thought in this book is to change from recruiting members to attracting members.
Celebrate differences
This book will explore the issues involved in bringing young people into your service club. All generations are not the same. Younger members seem to care less for tradition, placing a higher value on individuality, personal freedom, quicker to adapt to cultural and technological changes and more possessive of their free time. The key to bridging the generation gap is learning to understand the point of view of each generation and respecting their differences.
This little book is just to get you thinking about all the ways of recognizing your volunteers. Many of these suggestions are things that you can do and some are there to make you think. Recognition is magic. It is one of the keys to retention. Everyone wants to know that they are being appreciated when they work. This 96 page publication contains 77 suggestions for showing your volunteers that they are appreciated.
It’s my hope that this book will give you many suggestions for recruiting your new volunteers. It will help you to create a variety of niche marketing techniques to find today’s potential volunteers. These volunteers are different from yesterday’s traditional volunteers in that they are willing to admit that they are looking for a benefit from their volunteer activity. This 96 page book will help you locate these best practices and show you how to apply them to your volunteer setting.

The Care & Feeding of Volunteers has evolved from a series of successful seminars and on-site trainings conducted in over 100 locations across the United States and into Europe. In this book, Bill will present unorthodox ways of working with volunteers. It will attempt to change the paradigm of how America thinks about managing volunteers. In The Care & Feeding of Volunteers, Bill challenges you to consider applying many of the leadership strategies that are working in corporate America to your non-profit place. This publication suggests, in an out-of-the box way, that we should not be recruiting volunteers in a 1970s fashion. It’s a new millennium and tomorrow’s volunteers will not respond to yesterdays management thinking, but will be looking for an agency that respects their energy, passion and talents.
We have put together a model volunteer handbook. It contains volunteering policies, standards of conduct, performance review, workers’ compensation, and other policies. This handbook will serve as a model for a non-profit volunteer agency and includes an opening letter to the volunteers, a team-building statement, an orientation welcome letter, mission statement, value statement, and a statement of purpose. A statement of what the volunteer can expect from the agency and a statement of what the agency expects from the volunteer is included. Policies include absences and lateness, attendance, background checks, commitment, confidentiality, dress code, driving record check, etc. Policies on termination of a volunteer are among the thirty-seven policies in the comb-bound book. Permission to use the material in building your handbook is included with the book.
We have put together a collection of forms for volunteer programs. These include a commitment form, volunteer application form, exit interview questionnaire, interview questions, disclosure statement, confidentiality statement, telephone reference check form, permission to perform a background check form, self-evaluation form, feedback form, release form, and a volunteer termination form. Sixteen critical volunteer management forms are included with permission to reproduce the forms.
