I had the privilege of attending Chief Rufer's lecture at FDIC this year. He talked about Volunteer recruitment, retention, and training. The information he provided to my department is absolutely invaluable and I am forever indebted to him for all he has provided me.

Great ideas!

Al brought a lot of great ideas and presented them in a way that really sticks. The exercise he had us do really put things into perspective with our service. Recruiting really is a long term commitment that needs needs to be addressed before it's too late. The information on what works and what doesn't will really help in our long term recruiting.
