Town offers Working with Difficult Volunteer Situations C.O.R.E. workshop

What happens when volunteers don’t carry out their assigned roles or cause tension with others?  If you’ve encountered these or other challenging situations with volunteers, come out to the Community Organizations in Recreation (C.O.R.E.) Working with Difficult Volunteer Situations workshop on Tuesday, March 29, 2011, from 10 a.m. to noon at Town Hall.

The workshop is facilitated by Carole Furhrer, manager of Community Development and Education for Volunteer Halton and will focus on common situations encountered when dealing with difficult or demanding volunteers. Discussions will include defining volunteer roles, time and people management, as well as engagement techniques to reduce risk. Furher will also offer tips and solutions, along with examples from her 20-year career working with volunteers.

The cost to attend this workshop is $35 for C.O.R.E. or Community Development Halton members, or $50 for non-members. Registration is required. For more information contact Louise Veres at lveres@oakville.ca or 905-845-6601, ext. 3154.
