Why join MVAVA?
Monthly Meetings Every month during our brown-bag lunch meetings, MVAVA hosts speakers, round table discussions, and/or panel discussions on topics of interest to volunteer managers. These meetings allow members to enhance their professional development by improving their knowledge and skills while meeting and sharing ideas with other volunteer professionals.
Community Resources The ability to network with others who share your mission of working with volunteers is enhanced by the rotation of meeting locations. Meetings are hosted by various local organizations, providing managers with the opportunity to broaden their understanding and knowledge of resources in the community.
Promotion As a member, you have the exclusive ability promote your organization and any special events on the website and at members meetings.
Networking The connection made with other volunteer managers is a crucial component of what MVAVA has to offer. The combined years of volunteer management experience of our members is a valuable resource, available to any member. The spirit of sharing and open communication fosters a mentoring atmosphere that can be an essential key to your success for you and your organization.
