An extensive guide for participation in voluntary groups underlines the ""ground rules, pitfalls and proved strategies"" in both club (service, fraternal, church, etc.) and agency (hospital, school, Scouts, little theater, welfare and others specifically programmed) areas and gives pointers for mere members as well as chairmen and presidents. Why people are asked to join a project, how to recruit and manage free manpower, committee work and chairmanship behavior and procedures, absenteeism, board meetings, social and staff workers are part of the picture as is the central question -- raising money. The final chapters deal with working with the community as well as for it, conventions both from the delegate's and the official's activities -- and resignation. Most useful, practical material, this should be an assist for neophytes and experts.
