Boomer Volunteer Engagement:

Collaborate Today, Thrive Tomorrow

Authors:  Jill Friedman Fixler and Sandie Eichber, with Gail Lorenz, CVA
Publisher:  VolunteerMatch

The hot issue of the moment is harnessing the energy of the baby boom volunteers who are starting to hit their retirement years.  This book, published by VolunteerMatch, the online volunteer recruiting site, and written by experienced trainers in the field of volunteerism is a practical guide to engaging volunteers.

There is background information on the world of the boomer and chapters on structuring the organization for innovation, creating work plans, networking, understanding motivation, and nurturing relationship.  There are lots of forms and charts to help guide you in the process of engaging boomers.  The chapter on interviewing talks about a “script” for the discussion and helps with types of questions that would pique the interest of a baby boom volunteer and vocabulary to use during the interview.  An extensive appendix provides forms on everything from doing a needs assessment to a motivational analysis and more.  A must for your library.
