Imagine an event with no volunteers.
Go ahead, close your eyes and try to imagine it. Not a pretty picture, right?
I image it looks something like one harried event organizer darting around with frazzled hair and a red face trying to simulaneously set up the course, hand out bibs, direct people to the porta potties and explain for the umpteenth time that, "NO, I DON'T HAVE ANY BAND AIDS!"
There's no question that volunteers are the lifeblood of any event, so how do you:
Find potential volunteers?
Get those potentials to actually sign up?
Keep the ones who've come on board happy?
We covered these three question (and more!) in our free webinar 5 Easy Strategies to Successfully Recruit Race Volunteers. If you missed it, that's okay because we recorded it for you.
In this webinar, Kaylee Williams with the volunteer platform VolunteerLocal joins imATHLETE (online race registration software, if you're unfamiliar) to give you five easy strategies you can use to increase your volunteer sign ups.
Done correctly, recruiting more of the right volunteers and using their time wisely makes your life a heck of a lot easier.
Happy volunteers = happy athletes = more volunteer and race registrations next year!
