Grab a cup of coffee and self-reflect on our checklist below.
A failure to evolve is a failure to remain sustainable. We put together a self-checklist for you to evaluate whether your department/organization is still doing some of these practices that should be outdated.
Do you charge your volunteers annual membership dues?
Do you require an application fee for volunteers?
Do you still allow the general membership the ability to "vote in" or "vote out" members?
Do you fail to recognize length of service from other departments?
Do you require administrative leadership roles to have operational training requirements?
Do all bills/expenditures have to be voted on by the general membership?
Do you require your members to attend a certain number of "company meetings"?
Do you place additional importance of administrative tasks on operational members?
Do you restrict probationary members to be at the station at only certain times or when certain individuals are there?
Do you restrict the involvement level of probationary members?
Do probationary members need to be "voted on" by the membership to come off probation?
