This session was recorded at NHPCO’s Volunteer Leadership Virtual Conference (VLVC), August 3 2012

As volunteers become more "wired," volunteer coordinators are challenged to keep up with the times. Learn about the pros and cons of email, Facebook and blogging for recruitment, retention and basic communication. Discover creative ways to engage volunteers as well as the do's and don'ts of HIPAA online. This will be a strategy class, NOT a workshop on the mechanics of building a Facebook page. No programming experience is required. Familiarity with Facebook and blogs is a plus, but not necessary.


  • Explain how social media differs from standard Internet tools (websites and email)
  • Identify at least five online engagement practices
  • Describe online policies required to stay HIPAA compliant
