Join us for the only national conference designed for equine rescues and sanctuaries! Participants will meet like-minded people from every corner of the nation and learn valuable skills to take their rescues and advocacy work to the next level. Workshops will feature topics on fundraising, branding, working with law enforcement, engaging trainers and getting horses adopted. There will also be an optional day to attend a horse training clinic with The HSUS Forever Foundation program trainer, Trevor Carter.
Volunteers often make up the vast majority of a rescue group’s workforce. Recruiting, motivating, and keeping great volunteers is critical to a rescue organization's mission and survival. In this webinar, participants will learn about the “crisis chaos spiral” caused by a lack of volunteer program structure, different volunteer program models and how to determine which works best for an organization. Participants will also learn how to build a strong volunteer management infrastructure, write effective and useful job descriptions, and find and keep the right people for their organization.
