Out now - A new book from Rob and amazing co-authors
We are pleased to announce that October 2019 will see the publication of a new edition of the Complete Volunteer Management Handbook.
In print since 1994, this new completely revised fourth edition is published by the Directory of Social Change in association with the University of Kent. It contains essential information for anyone managing volunteers. If you’ve just been given responsibility for volunteers in addition to your main role, or you’re a dedicated manager of volunteers, this book is for you. It will also be useful for those in other management and senior management roles to understand the work involved in effectively engaging volunteers.
Rob has co-authored the book with Rick Lynch, Mike Locke and Dr Eddy Hogg, all respected experts in volunteerism.
The new fourth edition of the Complete Volunteer Management Handbook will be published in October 2019 and you can pre-order your copy now from The Director of Social Change.
“A valuable source of information for anyone seeking to empower and support volunteers through effective management, enablement and support. The book is well researched, clearly presented and easy to navigate quickly.’”
Director of Volunteering,
Royal Voluntary Service
New on our blog - Rob’s back with a new post, looking at why leaders of volunteer engagement should look at what they do well and share the lessons with others rather than looking for answers in other organisations.
“You have unique insights and experience that are well placed to solve the problems you face in a way nobody else can. Without your pioneering solutions to your volunteer engagement challenges we will be stuck in an endless cycle of casting around for someone else’s ideas to apply to our – often very different – situations.”
From our monthly article for Third Sector magazine
This month, Rob shares his thoughts on why we must be able to discipline and dismiss volunteers.
“Dismissal of a volunteer is a last resort to be pursued when all else has failed. But it must remain an option if no other solution can be found."
