Topic and Speakers: Best Practices in Corporate Engagement from VolunteerMatch Solutions - Disaster Relief & Preparedness, Part 1: Corporate Collaboration for Haiti

Earlier this year saw a groundswell of altruism as people across the nation sought ways to help victims of disasters around the world. From the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, to the flooding in Tennessee, to the current crisis in the Gulf of Mexico, the desire to help those in need has been overwhelming. In these times of immediacy, the most successful ways for companies to contribute and be of service are to engage in an open dialogue, plan in advance, and be creative with your resources.

To help companies respond to their employees' desire to be of service during times of crisis, VolunteerMatch is presenting a free, two-part Webinar series on disaster relief and preparedness strategies for corporate engagement programs.

Join us Tuesday, August 3, for part one of the series where we'll talk with Minneapolis-based UnitedHealth Group, Medtronic, Toro, and Kids Against Hunger and learn about their joint effort to respond to the Haiti Earthquake. The discussion will focus on best practices in defining a clear corporate/nonprofit relationship, managing employee expectations during disaster response, and developing a strong plan in advance.

In part two of the series, we'll take a look at the long-term partnership to provide aid in times of crisis between Ryder System, Inc. and the American Red Cross. We will discuss the necessary aspects to developing and maintaining such a partnership. Ryder System, a commercial vehicle and distribution company, has a long history of partnering with American Red Cross, by providing transportation and logistical support, employee volunteers and grant donations for the American Red Cross Annual Disaster Giving Program.

Best Practice Network Webinars are free, hour-long events.
