A workshop on sustaining volunteers at nonprofit organizations is to be held at Ausable Chasm on November 5, 2014 from 10 am – 1 pm. The workshop is free and open to the public. The Sustaining Volunteers Workshop consists of three components - recruiting and training volunteers, meeting and greeting the public, and identifying community stories that link the region’s cultural, historic, natural and recreational assets. The training will describe how volunteers build a "real person" connection with visitors as they work on the front lines of their organization.
The workshop is sponsored by Lakes to Locks Passage, the Champlain Valley Heritage Network (CVHN) and the Adirondack Coast Cultural Alliance (ACCA). The workshop will be held in the cafeteria in the main the building at Ausable Chasm, 644 Route 373, Keeseville, NY 12944. Morning refreshments will be available, but pack a lunch if needed and wear warm clothes! Attendees are invited to visit the North Star Underground Railroad Museum (directly adjacent to Ausable Chasm) at 1pm following the workshop.
