A quantitative study was conducted to collect preliminary information on volunteers' perceptions of the volunteer management skills and practices of Cooperative Extension educators. Findings included that volunteers were able to articulate that Extension educators: use a contingent reward style of management, enable volunteers to take the lead on projects and in committee work, and recognize and reward their volunteers in a way that celebrates the volunteer's unique characteristics and contributions. Recommendations include professional development for educators and volunteers to develop a variety of strong administrative skills.
