Volunteer Recognition 

52 Weeks a year or

just 1 week a year??

Speaker: Betty LeBlanc

Volunteer Management Consultant

TEAM Dynamics, LLC

For Betty's BIO, click here: BIO of Betty LeBlanc.pdf

    As we celebrate and recognize volunteers during National Volunteer Week from April 6-12, 2014, let’s consider whether this should be an ongoing celebration or recognition or neither all year long.

    We will look at different types of volunteers and how they might like to be recognized (or not). If so, we’ll discuss ‘how’, ‘when’ and ‘why’.

       New Membership Rates!
 We accept members year-round and membership fees apply for 12 months from your date of joining. You can join online or at a meeting. We like to have everyone pre-register for meetings so that we have enough seating reserved and so that we can print up networking lists to give to attendees (lists all pre-registered attendees and their contact information). Download a membership brochure or join online.                               

Each meeting has a topic of interest for volunteer program leaders and time for Q&A. Members are surveyed regularly for topic input.                                          

Members are able to share information on the DOVIA listserv and receive periodic newsletters. Training days are offered twice a year and are discounted for members.                                          

DOVIA New Orleans is a registered 501(c)3 charitable organization and donations are tax deductible to the extent of the law.


Don't forget - We are collecting old suitcases for youth! The suitcases will be painted by local artists and then they will be given to foster youth through local CASA organizations for when they transition out of care. You can send us a note to collect your old, but still usable suitcase for painting!
