AIM Guidance on Recruiting and Retaining Volunteers

AIM (Association of Independent Museums) have published a wonderful range of really useful information papers.  Although first published in 2009, their briefing paper on recruiting and retaining volunteers is still relevant and useful. It contains some really useful practical advice, the most important of which is creating a volunteer management policy.

You can download the paper, for FREE,  at: http://bit.ly/uKJmwO
