Managing Volunteers for the Final Four

Volunteer management is no easy task! It can even feel like herding cats at times.

Recruit them. Train them. Communicate with them and assign them to appropriate committees. 

Our speaker, Doug Hall, the Vice President for Special Projects at the Harris County-Houston Sports Authority, will present and discuss his experience managing volunteers at a large scale event.

Hall worked with the Super Bowl Committee and was the main point person with the NCAA Men’s Basketball Staff throughout the 2016 Final Four.
