We also encourage you to nominate your volunteer stars - individual and businesses, who provide outstanding service to your organization. Nomination forms are available to your left. Taking the time to recognize your volunteers is important. Integrating thoughtful recognition in your program makes volunteers feel rewarded, valued and positive about your volunteer program. Recognition by and in front of peers, professional associates, friends and/or community neighbors is the most meaningful kind of recognition (Bruny, 1981). Meaningful recognition leads to increased satisfaction, which leads to increased volunteer retention. Volunteer Alexandria offers a venue for you to highlight your stars.
