On March 23rd & 24th the District held a Volunteer Development Workshop at Manitou Beach.
Unfortunately the Social Media Workshop scheduled for March 23rd was cancelled due to the bad weather. A few of the participants who did make the journey to Manitou that evening took in a live concert at Danceland. The facilitator of this workshop (Christian Bates Hardy of SPRA) is planning to offer the workshop as a live stream in June of 2018. Stay tuned to the District website & E-News for further information.
The Volunteer Engagement and Recruitment Workshop was held on March 24th with 12 participants in Attendance from Watrous, Manitou Beach, Delisle, Allan, Shields, Aberdeen, and the Sask Archaeology Society. Many more were registered but unable to attend due to the bad roads. Brenda Robinson of the ROBCAN group delivered the presentation, and spoke about how to recruit new volunteers in your community, how to engage them, and how the different generations of volunteers can be best utilized in an organization or community.
