Guide for running volunteer organizations
« on: December 05, 2002, 04:33:39 pm »

I can't find the thread, but a while back we discussed the idea of finding and reading an authoritative text on the subject of running a volunteer organization.

I suggested  "Volunteers: How to Get Them, How to Keep Them," and have gone ahead and ordered it.   Based on the research I've done and the reviews I've read, this book is the "best of the best," and has clear political applications.   One reviewer even went so far as to say that any political organization taking the book's advice would have a serious leg up on the existing parties.

"Volunteers" also reads easy based on the excerpt I took in.

I've ordered a copy myself and urge others to do the same, if they haven't already.  If we can settle on one text as a shared reference for our actions, we can ensure we're not making this up as we go but following a proven model.   Whether this text is the right one we won't know till we read it, but it looks like an odds-on favorite.

I ordered my copy from Amazon and looks like I won't get it until January tho :(
