FROM THE TOP DOWN:
THE EXECUTIVE ROLE IN SUCCESSFUL VOLUNTEER INVOLVEMENT
Thinking of a birthday gift for your supervisor or executive director? This book would be just the ticket. This fully revised edition of Susan Ellis’s book on the impact and role of administrators on the volunteer program is hot off the presses and available in print and electronically. The book addresses how nonprofit and governmental agency executives can be instrumental in the success of a volunteer program. It is not a how-to book on managing volunteers, but rather a guide for administrators on how to develop vision and leadership to enhance and improve the volunteer side of an organization.
There are chapters on budgeting, allocating resources, involving staff in the volunteer program, risk and liability issues, and how to evaluate the impact of volunteers on the program and the organization’s mission.
Susan’s straightforward style makes for easy reading. Chapters all have references to other sources of information on the topic. At the end of chapters is a feature where the author references information located elsewhere in the book that might be useful on the topic covered in that particular chapter. It is internal cross referencing.
