Running is my passion and I have long been uber-inspired by ultra-marathoners – those crazy body geniuses that push themselves to run anything further than the standard 26.2 mile marathon, even going as far as 50 or 100 miles – on their own two feet!
The best evangelists for your event are the people who play a part in creating it. And by that I don’t mean the meeting planners, I am talking about the volunteer leadership and loyal members who are committed to building your organization and growing their professional networks.
Volunteers are the lifeblood for any nonprofit organization but how often are you showing your appreciation for these dedicated members? They should be thanked as soon as they begin their volunteer journey and that should continue on a frequent basis throughout their time of volunteering within your organization.
