These workshops, the second topic in Rebound – a free 6-part program to complement and enhance the resources found in the Ottawa Return to Play Roadmap, will focus on the challenges of recruiting volunteers in sport in light of the pandemic.
Volunteer Recruitment & Retention in a Post Pandemic World
Community sport organizations have been challenged in new and unexpected ways during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Chalk Talk will help to identify targeted solutions to help organizations recruit and retain a team of volunteers who will support recovery and future growth.
The Volunteer Recruitment Retention Chalk Talk will provide participants with an opportunity to:
- Understand how the pandemic and shifting attitudes towards volunteerism have impacted volunteers in community sport.
- Develop and discuss strategies to support the needs of community sport volunteer management efforts as we look to recover from the pandemic.
- Explore innovative and creative solutions to recruit and retain top volunteers throughout the organization including safety officers and board members, coaches and officials
This is a free virtual event. The workshop will be conducted via Zoom meeting with use of breakout rooms, open discussion, and other virtual meeting tools. The same one-day workshop will be offered on 2 separate dates. Please register for 1 of the 2 available dates.
