Welcome to Volunteer Plain Talk, the site where volunteer managers can chat, air frustrations, laugh, and learn from each other. Please feel free to comment appropriately.

About me:  I’ve been working with volunteers since 1995. Currently I work with a force of about 900 volunteers. Meridian is my pen name. I don’t wish to embarrass myself or anyone else. I do wish to be able to talk about the challenging work of managing volunteers.
