How to Manage a Successful Volunteer/Docent Program
November 30 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm
A panel discussion with:
- Elsa Eisenberg, Group Tours & Volunteer Coordinator, Coe Hall and Planting Fields State Park
- Judy Pockriss, Coordinator of Volunteers, Nassau County Museums
- Shane Pastore, Coordinator of Volunteers, Long Island Maritime Museum
- Ken Horowitz, Docent Coordinator, Falaise Manson at Sands Point Preserve
Volunteers are critical to the operations of many cultural institutions across Long Island. While some ‘super volunteers’ are invaluable, others, meaning no harm, can become disruptive or detrimental to an organization’s success. The panel will discuss the importance of training, managing volunteer expectations, regular performance reviews, showing gratitude, and much more. Whether you are a seasoned volunteer supervisor or are just getting started, having a plan for managing volunteers will keep projects and programming running smoothly.
Continental breakfast will be served.
