Volunteer Management Survey Kicks Off
It probably comes as no surprise that volunteers are the life blood of the horse industry. Recruiting and retaining volunteers can be challenging, and it can be one of the key obstacles to growth. It can also be difficult to figure out where to start to improve volunteer management.
Blue Ribbon Consulting, LDO, LLC is conducting a volunteer management survey to develop a white paper that will provide a snapshot on where the horse industry stands. The survey results can help nonprofits to determine next steps to strengthen their volunteer management practices. Those that operate an equine oriented nonprofit, or on the board of directors are invited to take a few moments to participate in this survey. Answers are confidential and will only be used in aggregate to produce a white paper that will be posted to the Blue Ribbon Consulting website. If you don't run an equine nonprofit but know someone that does, please send the link along to them.
Find the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FFV9S3Y . Please complete the survey by December 15, 2014. The white paper will be available in early 2015.
