Create Volunteering "interests and skills" checklists SD187/188/189/283/317
One of the quickest ways to match organization needs with membership talent is to identify what skills are needed and what skills potential volunteers are willing to offer. When such postings are put on the website on the "Get Involved as a Volunteer" webpage (https://www.mountaineers.org/volunteers/get-involved-as-a-volunteer), we have YET not to have someone come forward and offer to help out. If your profile page allowed you to report your interests and skills, The Mountaineers could more specifically target recruitment efforts to people who are most likely to like the work being offered. It's a fundamental part of ensuring that volunteer-driven organizations keep their "labor" pool fresh and excited - by creating work volunteers WANT to do.
Check out the My Volunteer Profile tab from your account and My Profile link.
We're considering this the integration of the "Volunteers for Salesforce" app with our website including a "My Volunteer" page and report of interest and volunteers hours,etc.

In terms of technical development, I think this requires us to consider how to empower committees and branch leadership to access and utilize this information as well. So we have to capture information about skills, interests, (and recognition desires such as shirt and jacket sizes) on people's profiles, and then allow others throughout the organization to access it appropriately.
