We are entering a phase of detailed preparation for our tree planting plan - to gradually build up opportunities for small groups or families in the general public to join a "Tree Planting Club" and engage in small plantings in one zone of Burlington. We will be engaging with the City of Burlington, specifically with the Park and Forestry Department. We are forming a planning committee for this new approach, and you would be welcome as a member of that group which will meet once a week at first, then meet less frequently as the public becomes more informed about how to sign on for the small plantings.
1. Working closely with the Volunteer Coordinator, to manage the wave of new volunteers.
2. Staying aware of Board decisions about new or changed programs for volunteer placement.
3. Staying in frequent phone or email contact, to ensure that every new volunteer is contacted promptly and given orientation to the history, values, and projects of the organization.
4. Doing your utmost to learn enough about the individual volunteer to ensure that we find an appropriate “fit” for the individual.
5. Ensure that the new volunteer is thriving in the volunteer position.
5. In the case of an unhappy or discontented volunteer, collaborate closely with the Volunteer Coordinator to rectify the situation. Ideally, you will collaborate with one other member of the Committee, who could replace you in situations of absence
