Volunteer Management Progress Report Survey

Volunteer Management Progress Report Survey

Add Your Voice to the 2016 Volunteer Management Progress Survey & Report

If you manage volunteers or lead a volunteer program or organization (as a volunteer or paid staff), don’t miss your chance to take the Volunteer Management Progress Survey and be the first to learn the results.

This “state of the industry” survey includes questions related to volunteer management practices, challenges, and needs. Researchers hope to paint a more complete picture of today’s volunteer management pros while taking into account their organizational characteristics, resources, locations, etc.

Curious about how your volunteer engagement practices compare with other professionals like you?
Wondering how you salary compares with your peers at similar organizations?
Interested in what the average ratio of volunteers to volunteer managers is for nonprofits of various sizes?
Wonder what the biggest pinch points are for the field of volunteerism?

Answers to questions like these and more will be reported in the 2016 Volunteer Management Progress Report. Everyone who completes the survey will get an invite to a free webinar presented by the researchers in January.

The deadline to complete the survey is December 15, 2015
and the survey takes less than 15 minutes to complete.
