Finding More Volunteers: Beyond the same ten people who try to do it all now
February 15, 2023

The secret to finding volunteers in small towns today is to let go of old ways that no longer serve us. In this virtual Roundtable co-hosted by Save.Your.Town, you’ll discover things you don’t have to do anymore, and new Idea Friendly ways that will attract more new volunteers.
