Coffee with Katie October Topic: Onboarding New Volunteers

When a new volunteer joins our efforts it’s important to make them feel welcome, prepared, and useful! Katie will share with you a checklist to make sure new volunteers are your co-op hitting the ground running! The next Coffee with Katie is scheduled for November 30 at 12 noon CST.

Coffee with Katie is a virtual and FREE monthly networking and educational event hosted as a way for Katie to P6 (Co-ops helping Co-ops) some of the great information she has learned.
