Registration is FREE!
Register herebit.ly/2OkIVUz

You're invited to our Resource Round-Up: Volunteer Strategies training! The pandemic has increased volunteerism for some and decreased it for others. Regardless of the size of your volunteer base, strong volunteer recruitment and management tools will ALWAYS be beneficial to your organization.

Join us to learn from some tried-and-true strategies from your peers and their volunteers for recruiting volunteers and keeping them around. You’ll have plenty of time to network with others in breakout sessions and determine how to take the information back to your communities.

For more information, contact Olivia Percoco at opercoco@conservationfund.org.

Resource Roundup: Evaluation (A Virtual Training)
May 13, 2021 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Registration begins April 19, 2021. You can register here: https://www.cognitoforms.com/TheConservationFund1/ResourceRoundupEvaluationMay132021

Do you dread being asked about your “evaluation strategy” when applying for funding? Unsure what that means or where to begin? Looking for easy, grab-and-go tools you can right-size for your organization? This workshop will cover all of this and more. During this interactive session, you will (a) learn why having an evaluation plan is worth the effort, (b) learn some helpful “dos” and “don’ts”, and (c) try on various evaluation resources in real-time. You’ll walk away with a (virtual) stack of tools and resources for improving your own evaluation efforts before projects and programs kick into high gear this summer!

Goals/Objectives

Participants will:
• Understand the importance of having an evaluation strategy
• Be able to identify the elements of a weak vs strong evaluation plan
• Learn how to build their own evaluation plan, based on the organization’s mission and program goals
• Learn different methods and tools for implementing their evaluation
