Managing technology volunteers
Many are the nonprofits who have been approached by well-meaning technologists volunteering much-need services and skills, including web site programming and IT support. But all too often, those same organizations don't understand how to manage tech volunteers, and how to "right size" and propely specify volunteer tasks and projects. In addition, tech volunteers often fail to understand the unique and resource-constrained nature of nonprofit technology requirements, and make inappropriate recommendations and selections.
This session will enumerate best practices for engaging and managing technology volunteers, and will discuss how to get the most out of tech volunteers without overtaxing their good will. Participants will be encouraged to share their real-world volunteer challenges for group discussion.
Session notes will be posted here.
