The Working Partnership Agreement: This session will give volunteers a chance to be a “fly on the wall” for a partnership agreement discussion. A partnership agreement is a basis of a great relationship between volunteers and staff. If done well, is a living, working document that changes and develops throughout your time in a role.

4/3/2018Change Savvy - Webinar
In today’s fast paced world, we often want things to slow down so we can catch up!  You might not be able to slow things down, but you can help yourself learn how to navigate the pace of change effectively.  We call this being change savvy.  A change savvy individual understands why business change is constant and what they need to do to succeed. Learn about the stages of organizational and personal change, how to support yourself and others, and strategize about how to thrive.
