January Webinar Scheduled! Join us January 31 at noon for “Databases for Watershed Group Volunteer and Member Management”

Tracking, maintaining, and managing your member and volunteer lists is one of the most time-consuming parts of running a watershed organization. But the payoffs are huge – organizations grow much faster when they have solid systems for tracking and renewing members and volunteers.
Please join POWR and guest presenter Baird Straughan, who will talk about the range of databases available for river and watershed groups. Baird will share an online tool for evaluating what kind of database fits your organizations needs. Baird has created a unique volunteer and membership management database designed with community watershed organizations in mind and will provide a brief introduction to that as well.

Friday January 31, 2020 at 12 noon.
