Volunteer Handbook: The How and Why of It

The Volunteer Program Handbook just won’t budge from my to-do list! This workshop will explore the purpose of the volunteer handbook and different ways to determine what your organization needs for its volunteer program. We’ll discuss components, layout and function, and leave with a clear understanding of what that to-do item really means.

Donata Mikulik is the Volunteer and Community Service and RSVP Manager at the Volunteer Center of Sonoma County. Her passion is to find creative ways to utilize each volunteer’s unique talents to increase capacity while fostering collaboration. Donata has earned her Master’s in Public Administration from the University of San Francisco and has spent over 10 years working in the non-profit and public sector promoting community engagement.

Craig Matsuda is a retired Air Force officer. For over half of his 25-year career, he worked at the headquarters level advising generals and admirals on medical logistics policies, operations, manpower, and finances. During the process, he wrote numerous regulations, policy letters, handbooks, and newsletters. He also conducted inspections, staff assistance visits, and workshops to reinforce these directives. He's proud to be a Schulz volunteer for nearly a year and a half. 
Kristi Lucas-Hayden has an M.A. and M.F.A. from UCLA. She is a life-long volunteer. As the mother of 5, she spent over 30 years volunteering as an artist in schools and the community and 10 years ago signed on as the Volunteer Director at the Charles M. Schulz Museum and Research Center. During that time she has quadrupled the number of volunteers there from 40 to 120+. She is enthusiastic and passionate about how volunteering creates community and how clear and organized leadership helps all Volunteer Programs thrive.
