Time: Registration 9 AM, Class Starts promptly 9:30 until Noon
Location Huntingdon Regional Fire & Rescue, McConnellstown, PA on PA route 26, just a few miles South of the Huntingdon Walmart The Art of the Ask brings the soft skills of how to invite a person to join your organization to those that need it most, your volunteers. It seems simple, if everyone would just bring one friend, you would have all the help you need. Yet nationally the amount of people willing to volunteer is in decline and those that remain struggle with the basics of recruiting volunteers, “The Ask”.
Our 2-hour workshop will transform both veteran and recent volunteers into brand ambassadors for your organization. We cover everything from “soup to nuts” in a simple, fun format that will get everyone involved!
Key Topics of the Workshop
• How many Volunteers does your Organization need?
• Your Organization’s Public Image
• Identify your organizations needs – recognizing volunteer needs
• Passive Vs. Active Recruitment
• How to ask someone to volunteer
• Where, When, How and Who are you going to recruit?
• The Follow-through
If you missed our classes in January now is your chance to join in the fun!

Meetings April 5th Phoenix
April 5, 2017, 7:00pm - April 5, 2017, 9:00pm
There will be a special meeting for AMFI members this Wednesday, April 5th at 7 PM at Phoenix Fire Hall, Hollidaysburg, PA. The purpose of the meeting is to give AMFI member department POC’s a chance to talk about the future. While our federal funding is gone, if it is the desire of the group, some of the group, there is no reason why we can’t continue our mission and self-fund it.
Several of you have wanted a forum to voice your ideas about what you would like to as the next version of the Allegheny Mountain Firefighters Initiative. This is your chance to talk about your suggestions and how we could fund it.
This is just a brainstorming session. If you would like to come and speak about your ideas, please feel encouraged to do so. If you can’t attend but would like to contribute an idea to the group simply reply to this e-mail.
To be clear there is no current plan to continue beyond April as AMFI.
This meeting will be to discuss ideas about reforming as a new organization.
If your department has rescue dummies, smoke machines or any other training or marketing materials in your possession please return them ASAP to Phoenix Fire Station for Inventory and Inspection. We must do a proper accounting of all AMFI materials.
