Session Description: The purpose of the workshop is to empower leaders to recruit and run well managed committees utilizing the strengths and time constraints of each volunteer.  Attendees will learn how to break down committee needs into specific and measurable tasks.

Once you know what you need to do, you will evaluate the skills needed to successfully perform these tasks. Documenting and communicating your requirements is the next step in recruitment. Putting the right people in the right task is critical, so you will learn to assess a volunteer’s strength to ensure maximum success.  Accountability is a key component and is achieved through efficient communication, which includes committee meetings utilizing traditional methods and current technology.
