Does your nonprofit rely on volunteers? Los Alamos Community Foundation is excited to be teaming up with Leadership Los Alamos and United Way Northern New Mexico to host the first “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest” on Saturday, June 10th.
The format for this year’s “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest” will be different than past volunteer fairs. The LACF Chamberfest booth will feature table space for nonprofits to display information about volunteer opportunities. You don’t have to staff the booth! You simply provide the materials using easy-to-use templates available at the May 25th nonprofit training session.
Preparing Your Nonprofit to Participate in the “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest”
Thursday, May 25th, 5:00pm
UNM-LA, Wallace Hall (Bldg 5)
Martha Katko of Leadership Los Alamos will explain the all-new format of this year’s volunteer fair and provide easy-to-use templates for creating the necessary “rack cards” with information about your organization’s volunteer opportunities. Martha will discuss best practices when recruiting volunteers, highlight how to maximize the effectiveness of your Volunteer Fair “rack cards”, and give tips and pointers for avoiding pitfalls after a potential volunteer has expressed interest.
Please RSVP to Laura.Crotzer@losalamoscf.org to attend the May 25th training session and indicate interest in the June 10th “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest.”
Spreading the word:
We’d love to see the 2017 “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest” be a huge success. Please share this e-mail with your nonprofit friends and associates. As a young nonprofit, LACF has worked hard to build a mailing list and offer quality training programs each month, but we know there are organizations who are not receiving these newsletters. If you can help spread the word of this great opportunity to expand the volunteer pool, the whole community benefits!
Can’t attend on May 25th?
In order to participate in the “Volunteer Fair at Chamberfest” someone from your nonprofit MUST attend the May 25th training session. If you are unable to attend the May 25th training session, we strongly encourage you to send a substitute. Executive directors, staff, board members and volunteers are all always welcome at all monthly nonprofit training sessions.
Nonprofit training sessions sponsored by Los Alamos Community Foundation are made possible with generous support from UNM-Los Alamos and the LANL Foundation.
