The Committee has
volunteer assignments that repeat annually. Lessons learned - what works and
what does not work, are important to record so our
volunteers don't waste their time.
Additionally, volunteers come and volunteers
go. It is efficient and important to
avoid 're-inventing the wheel' every time a new
volunteer takes on a new assignment. Therefore,
some basic rules must apply:
assignment, when possible, must have a primary
volunteer and a support volunteer. Often the
support person will be the volunteer who previously held
the primary position. Maintaining this
rule ensures support for all new volunteers and
continuity in how the assignment is managed.
- No assignment is
cast in concrete. New ideas and new ways of
doing something are always encouraged.
No one has all the answers. The
Committee wants to take advantage of these
opportunities arise. To do that, each
assignment has a procedural guideline. In
short, 'how to do the job.' It is
the responsibility of the primary volunteer to
update their assignment guidelines when they
improve the process of what they are doing. This is
accomplished with the Update/Report
form. This form goes directly to the
Activity Chair who will review it. It is
their responsibility to follow up and contact
you with any questions, comments and decision
regarding modifying the guidelines.
Please use the Update/Report form, and use it often.
is important for every volunteer to review their
assignment guidelines, then read them a second time.
