Stories from the Field: Volunteer Management at Queens Memory Project
Volunteers are integral to many collecting institutions, providing time and insight that an organization may not otherwise have access to. However, many organizations have little or no formal process or program in place for managing a volunteer program. In this webinar, Meral Agish, Community Coordinator, will cover volunteer outreach and engagement, training and retention at the Queens Memory Project.

Jun 1, 2022 01:00 PM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
