Cheers to Angela Azevedo for using VolunteerSpot to make all of her organizations needs easy!
The Association of Public Safety Communications proves how volunteering is a basic necessity with all organizations and how challenging it can be to monitor all volunteering needs. Find out how the they use VolunteerSpot to lend a helping hand for their Western Regional Conference.
Explain how you use VolunteerSpot to coordinate these volunteers.
I use VolunteerSpot to coordinate volunteers for our Western Regional Conference in Sacramento, CA.
Why did you decide to use VolunteerSpot?
Our parent organization, the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials, used VolunteerSpot for our national conference in New Orleans last year. I was shadowing the volunteer coordinator and they showed me how the website worked. It was amazing!
What’s one piece of advice you have for volunteers or their leaders out there?
If you're coordinating volunteers for a conference with breakout sessions, be sure to work very closely with the chair of programs. We had a slight problem of not having enough volunteers for the breakout sessions. While we were able to get standby volunteers on the fly, had we coordinated better, it would have been flawless.
What else would you like our readers to know about your organization or volunteering.
The Association of Public Safety Communications is a national and international organization that focuses on all aspects of public safety, from the dispatcher to the officer, firefighter, supervisors and technical support staff. Every state has a chapter and most hold monthly meetings, typically with a vendor sponsor and a feature speaker. The meetings are informative and a way for everyone to network with other professionals.
