WBBA Announces Services! Also: Volunteer seminar and other opportunities.

Introducing Business Services!

After lots of feedback and many requests from our small business community, the West Bank Business Association is excited to announce that we will begin adding consulting to our business services! We’re starting small to address immediate needs in marketing, web development and meeting facilitation.

Services will be offered at competitive rates, with discounts extended to WBBA members. You can find out more about services by visiting the WBBA website here: http://www.wbba.thewestbank.org/?page_id=1174

Recruitment, Retention & Reward: Volunteer Management Basics.

One of the number one issues to come out of our Strategic Planning survey was capacity and resources. Well – we’ve got a great seminar coming up that can help you with just that!

Next Thursday’s workshop will focus on the essential basics of working with and utilizing volunteers. We’ll talk about creating a volunteer position or program for your organization, how to motivate and manage volunteers effectively, and how to reward volunteers in order to sustain a volunteer base for your organization. If time permits we will also talk about Internships and the differences and values of cultivating an internship at your organization.

Presented by Lucas Schulze, Communications & Program Specialist at the WBBA and former Volunteer Coordinator for the Loft Literary Center.

Thursday October 16, 4:00pm at Oren Gateway Center.
