Free seminar to focus on recruiting, training volunteers

Are you a member of a non-profit organization, church, chamber or concerned citizens group that needs volunteers to help you? Do you find yourself constantly begging people to care about making your community a better place? Are you challenged with recruiting and retaining volunteers? Do your most committed volunteers fail to show up just when you need them the most?

SBC-LogoTo assist those who answered yes to any of these questions, the Small Business Center of Richmond Community College is offering a free seminar focusing on recruiting and training volunteers. The workshop will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Thursday, March 19, at the Cole Auditorium on the main campus of RCC in Hamlet.

“The seminar will help you organize your volunteers so that their time can be used effectively, and it will also give you great tips on how to retain volunteers and keep them ‘on board’ even during challenging times,” said Gypsie Murdaugh, who will lead the workshop.

Murdaugh has been working with non-profits more than 30 years and knows the challenges of volunteer recruitment. She has championed the cause of many organizations throughout the Southeastern region of the United States and through her leadership has helped organizations and churches to reach great goals by the commitment of volunteers of all ages, races and religious origins.

Pre-registration for the seminar may be completed online at; or via email or phone by contacting Small Business Center Director Deborah Hardison at or (910) 410-1687. Pre-registration preferred but walk-ins are welcome.
