How to Manage Volunteers for Your Political Events & Fundraisers

Volunteers can be some of your strongest assets when you’re organizing a political event or campaign. You may not be paying volunteers, but their passion and commitment are certainly valuable campaign resources.

Yet enthusiasm doesn’t always translate to effectiveness. Putting a solid volunteer management strategy in place is critical to ensuring that your volunteers are ready to help you run a successful event. The more efficiently you can onboard and train your volunteers, the better the results will be for your campaign or party.
