What is included with this book?


Jonathan and Tom McKee's book, The New Breed, is an enthusiastic, thoughtful, and contemporary look at volunteering as it is evolving in this new century. There's no question that organizations must utilize up-to-date management techniques to attract and retain the wide range of people who want to serve their cause. In a practical and often humorous way, the authors introduce real-life challenges in volunteer engagement and give wonderful suggestions for everything from recruiting to using computer technology for communication. They aim to inspire the leader of volunteers and they succeed.
