This webinar is part of the California State Library's statewide initiative Get Involved: Powered by Your Library.
Description: For two years we've been working on your library or jurisdiction's capacity: cultivating volunteers into new positions and into leadership, doing more than staff alone can accomplish. How will you share your (many) accomplishments, and how will you get feedback from others who test your tools - not just in libraries, but across your community? What do you bring to community collaborations, who are likely partners, and what's in it for you?
One thing this economy demands is collaboration with less travel - and often less time. Jennifer and Jill will give you a quick run-down of the pros and cons of virtual team collaboration tools - like schedulers and web conferencing platforms - and a few over-arching tips as you grow and sustain your recent volunteer engagement relationships. Please join us!
