Infrastructure to Support Volunteering

Sarah J. Butler
By Susan J. Ellis. Provides a complete discussion of the role of a volunteer center and how to plan strategically for one. When the United Way of America let this book go out of print, Susan received permission to make it available online free of charge. Despite the dated title, the material is still very pertinent today for anyone starting or re-assessing a volunteer center.
Document type: 

Despite a few official volunteer statistics, we really do not have many facts. If we want to encourage researchers to do serious data collection about our field, then we need to articulate some better questions to ask. 

In part 2 of her response to the dissolution of AVA, Susan explains why it’s important for a professional association to start with (and usually maintain) a single-nation focus rather than an international one.
