Breaking the Silence

The Volunteer Management profession tends to have a bit of a complex when it comes to social media, but there are a few voices out there who are trying to change perceptions. One of the most vocal voices is that of DJ Cronin.

DJ’s blog postings don’t shy away from controversial subjects in Volunteer Management, and he isn’t afraid to say that the field of Volunteer Management is lacking strong unified voices. He’s also figured out that to change that reality; he will have to be the strong voice he is looking for.

I encourage anyone reading this to take the time to read his blog. Technology has given us more opportunities than ever before to learn from our colleagues and friends right across the globe. Don't pass up the opportunity. Take some time today to connect and share.
