We are about to enter the busiest time of year for most nonprofits… (dramatic pause)… the holiday season. With end-of-year fundraising campaigns, colder weather and holiday volunteering rushes, it’s understandable that many of you will begin to feel a bit manic.
All of this means it’s especially important to take an hour or so of “me time.” Let us suggest the VolunteerMatch Learning Center. You can unwind from your day-to-day craziness while also refreshing your skills and picking up some new ones.
The Learning Center features a startlingly comprehensive series of free webinar trainings to help you use VolunteerMatch more effectively AND better recruit and engage volunteers.
Here are some of the great webinars coming up soon:

Be sure to check back every few weeks, as we’re always updating the webinars offered in the Learning Center.
You can follow all webinar conversations on Twitter with the hashtag #vmlearn. This is also a great way to catch up on discussions you had to miss.
So take a few minutes to find a webinar or two that looks good to you – and register now for your “me time.”
