Volunteer Resource Management to be Presented at UNF Nonprofit Conference on Sept. 19

Many nonprofits depend on volunteers to fulfill their mission. But effectively recruiting and managing them can be challenging.  At the 4th Annual Nonprofit Conference on September 19, the following breakout session will be presented to help attendees better learn strategies to utilize their volunteers to the fullest.

About the Workshop:
Volunteer Resource Management is an art and a science.  Think "Human Resource Management," only without the associated paycheck and other HR benefits.  How do you motivate people to work for no pay?  How do you craft jobs so they fit the person and forward your organization's mission and goals?  How do you keep your volunteers coming back?  In our short time together, we'll explore a few of the principles and practices that can help you take advantage of the amazing resource that we in nonprofit organizations are privileged to be able to mobilize-the volunteer labor force.   About the Speakers:


 Dr. Judith Smith has been president and CEO of HandsOn Jacksonville, Inc. since 1995 when she retired from active military service in the United States Navy.  She received her BS in Secondary Education from the University of Wisconsin, her MS in Education Leadership from the University of West Florida, and her Doctor of Management in Organizational Leadership from the University of Phoenix.  Dr. Smith is the author of two chapters of The Volunteer Management Handbook: Leadership Strategies for Success.  Under Dr. Smith’s leadership, HandsOn Jacksonville has received the HandsOn Network’s Affiliate Leadership Award and the Romney Excellence Award, and was recognized three times, by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of The Best Places to Work in Northeast Florida, most recently in 2012.  Dr. Smith has been honored by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of Northeast Florida’s Women of Influence and by Advantage Magazine as one of the 50 Business Influencers in Northeast Florida.  


 Dr. Tracy D. Connors has published eight nonprofit management handbooks – including the Volunteer Management Handbook and the Nonprofit Management Handbook.  With over 40 year’s total experience he has served in numerous executive/board positions for charitable organizations, including: arts and cultural organizations, social service organizations, and civic organizations.  Dr. Connors served in the U.S. Navy over the course of 32 years through active/inactive duty on ships, numerous senior flag staffs, and tours of duty on the staff of the Secretary of the Navy and the Chief of Naval Operations. Tracy D. Connors attended Jacksonville University, University of Florida (BA), the University of Rhode Island (MA), and Capella University (Ph.D. with Distinction, human services management, 2013).  Jacksonville University named Connors a "Distinguished Dolphin" in 2010.
