Volunteer management is a very wide topic. There are different levels of involvement in volunteer management, from programme directing to volunteer managing and coordinating. Each level involves different functions and they are all crucial to the success of volunteer programmes.
The Essential Guide to a Volunteer Management System is written from the perspective of helping an organisation start its volunteer management system (VMS); those who already have such a system in place will also find use for it.
Volunteer managers and coordinators, and all those who work directly with volunteers and coordinate the day-to-day activities of the volunteers will find this guide a useful tool in their work.
