In most organizations, the decision to sponsor an event comes from Boards, Committees, and/or combinations with upper management. The paid staff and volunteers execute the decisions of these entities and are interdependent upon mutual collaboration between both groups.  It is important that both groups maintain a unified vision of the event and respect each groups boundaries during the execution stages.

Research the ways Boards, staff, and volunteers might interact with each other and both positive and negative characteristics of these relationships.

Develop a chart depicting the levels of authority and intervention Boards, Committees, Management, staff, and volunteers must navigate through from commencement to completion. Include a 4-5 paragraph summary of your insights.

Ultimately, a volunteer coordinator or manager strives to produce a successful event by making the best use of what is available to his or her organization. Mobilizing volunteers to assist existing staff is only one part of the equation. Planning where and when the event will take place, who will participate including staff, volunteers, and vendors, and providing positive, confident direction is the key to seeing the event successfully materialize.

Review Chapters 9-10 in the textbook by McKee & McKee, “The New Breed”

Choose a pseudo-event. Event choices can include the following options below:

Preparing for a sponsored event so that it can be successfully executed is the primary focus for a volunteer coordinator.  Every aspect of the event and where volunteer versus paid staff would best fit and serve must be examined. Additionally, based on the level of participation, the number of participants, and skill sets, a projected time-line must be developed with an acceptable deviation.

Develop a pseudo-event for the organization of your choice and prepare a template on how you will mobilize volunteers and staff to complete the event. The following items must be included.

The event
The purpose
Dates and times
Responsibilities need for paid staff versus volunteers
Pre and onsite training and communication
Leadership strategy
Transportation if needed
Set up
Venders, if present or needed
Foodservice if offered
Clean up
