If you haven’t had the chance to sit in on a training with Martin J Cowling, now’s your chance!  I am excited that Martin will be coming to Seattle (all the way from Australia!) to present a workshop on Recession Proofing Your Volunteer Program.

I’ve had the opportunity to participate in workshops with Martin at the National Conference on Service and Volunteerism.  He is fantastic!

If you’ve been concerned about how the economic downturn is affecting your program and are interested in learning about strategies to build a more resilient program, even when times are tough, then Martin’s training is for you.

Workshop Information:

Recession Proofing Your Volunteer Program

Date: September 29th

Time: 9:00-4:00 pm

Location: 2100 Bldg, Seattle
