COMMUNITY GROUPS AND YOU

general about joining and participating effectively in volunteer groups of any nature comes from the authors of Running a Happy Family. Here techniques learned in business and civic participation are applied to the running of a board, club, committee, fund drive. The emphasis is on communication-- with members, with the public, verbal and written. There are chapters on planning and organizing; selection, or choosing people; delegation, or getting things done through others; developing leaders from the membership. Bad examples are followed by inclusive and don'ts. The advice is effective on a fairly basic level of performance: Larger organizations may need more defined patterns of procedure, or perhaps practice in the field.
