Money – or lack of it – always rears its ugly head in discussions of professional development for those in volunteer management, even though successful leaders of volunteers are creative when it comes to finding resources for volunteers. In this Points of View essay, Susan J. Ellis argues that volunteer managers should apply creative approaches to get the professional development they need. She offers excellent ideas that provide many great learning opportunities, requiring time and attention but not cash.
