Legal issue awareness is a fact of life all the time but never more that in today’s environment. This session will briefly explore 9 ½ generic legal issues most frequently affecting the manager of volunteer resources and the volunteers of today. Confidentiality, risk management, screening, and money are sample issues. One area of focus will be on what might be considered “emerging issues”. This area will include COVID-19 issues. Little in the area of law is black and white; learn where the gray areas are now and in the future! Taking this proactive training step is a “best practice’ for all!
At the conclusion of this workshop attendees will have a better awareness of legal issues they may confront as managers of volunteers; will have the knowledge to find information on legal issues; and will be better prepared to address legal issues as they arise in the conduct of the management of volunteers. Now is the time for creative solutions. By coming together to discuss common challenges we each benefit from the ideas of others.
This webinar will be a combination of lecture and discussion with ample time for questions.
