We are looking to start an Event Volunteer Committee. Has anyone used a group like this to run their fundraising events? If so, what do you find most helpful when managing a group like this and what type of tasks do you have them perform? What is the target number of volunteers for your committee?
Definitely interested in hearing ideas also. We just started a maintenance committee, and would also like to add fundraising/event and marketing committees.
We've found a lot of success by taking the list of responsibilities for any given event, i.e. food, decorations, video, etc. and asking folks what they're good at. We also found it useful to create signups for everything using signupgenius.com or similar (there are several out there). We were very specific in our needs and were able to find people who were a little more invested since they chose the area. Good luck - you'll do great!
Will definitely try this for next event. We do send out an email request for help, but I can see making a list of specific duties would better.
Question: do you think SignupGenius would work for volunteers to sign up for shelter shifts, whenever we get past Covid-19?
Thank you for the info!
I think signupgenius or similar would be a great solution for volunteer shifts at the shelter. If you allow them to sign up at their convenience, you might save time having to manage the sign ups and more time promoting the link to fill the gaps. Good luck!
Great, thank you! Do you guys meet often? Quarterly?
This looks very interesting and we may be able to use it. Is there a fee you have to pay? or is there a way to use it for free?
Thanks for sharing!
We used the free/basic membership at signupgenius and it worked great for our needs. One of the great things is once you create it, you can refine it year after year or event after event to suit your needs. Best of luck!
