This book was put together in the sincere hope that is will be of benefit to volunteers and volunteer programs everywhere. Since this could be considered a “how to” book, the author’s personality has not been edited out of the text. This author, additionally, has tried to make sure that she reminds readers that new, politically correct terms for items and organizations do not change what they are, fundamentally. There are very few conventions in this book. Chiefly, both men and women may be included under the term “he”. Additionally, all of the suggestions in this book should work well with individual projects, full programs, etc. While a person desiring information can benefit from this text, it is written primarily with groups (society, organization, chapter, division, etc.) in mind.
