Leadership Development Program Leading Successful Volunteer Projects
Sunday, November 14, 2004, 5:00-6:30pm (free)

Non-profits, educational institutions, and many other types of organization rely on volunteers to achieve their missions.  At the same time, volunteer-based projects are a challenge to pull off. This interactive session will draw on experiences from audience members and examples from the recent redesign of the ASIS&T website.  We will examine volunteering, leading, and success (and even projects) in order to discover some simple but effective philosophies and strategies to make you a better leader - and a better volunteer.
