The ABC’s of EVP’s

The Northern New Jersey Business Volunteer Council (BVC) is kicking off its series “Employee Volunteer Program Essentials” with a two-part webinar: The ABC’s of EVP’s.  Part I – The Starting Point: Strategy and Structure-- will be presented on ­­­­­Friday February 24 and Part II—Ready, Set, Implement! -- on Friday March 9. Both sessions will be from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm.­­­­ The cost to register for either session is $25 per person--$40 for both; employees of BVC member companies may register for free. Registration deadline is February 20, at which time the log-in information will be provided. Recordings of each webinar will also be available to registrants. Click here to register.

The webinars are designed for companies that want to start an employee volunteer program (EVP) for the first time—or take a fresh look at their existing program. Part I will explore how to develop an approach that works, how to structure and organize the program, how to build support for the EVP, and how to develop policies to guide it. Part II will explore how to choose community partners for the volunteer efforts, how to recruit volunteers, how to recognize and reward employee volunteers and how to measure the success of the EVP.


David Warshaw of Vistas Volunteer Management Solutions, and Jo Ann Dow-Breslin of JD Communications, LLC will co-lead the sessions. Together, they have more than 40 years experience in community relations and corporate communications.
