“Having been in the volunteerism field for more than 30 years, it’s hard to teach an old dog new tricks–or so I thought before listening with rapt interest in what Tobi had to say. Her correlation of what we do in volunteer administration with neuroscience is brilliant, and offered me many “A-ha” moments. Thanks for opening my eyes to look outside the box, and our own field, for inspiring ways to engage and retain our valuable volunteers!”
“I just wanted to send a quick THANK YOU for the work you do to produce the Volunteer Management Progress Report. Last week I presented to our board about how our program has gone from less than 300 volunteers to over 1000 volunteers in about 4 years, and what this means for our organization. The data in the survey really helped me make my argument. The ability to compare how our program stacks up to those around the world was something I wouldn’t have known to do, let alone been able to articulate, without the report. I think we took a big jump forward in proving that our volunteer program really is professional, critical to fulfilling our mission, and in need of more resources. So, thank you!”

“I truly appreciate your study into the psychology of making our efforts work. We know intuitively and through experience that many of the things we attempt will–or won’t–work, but it’s helpful to have the complete picture as to why it is that way. It’s also a lot more credible to quote the facts and theory than saying, “because I know.” When you’re busy handling the day-to-day demands, it’s tough to do research. Thanks for making it available in a concise and helpful format!!”
