CVA CommunityThe CVA network is over 1,000 strong and includes leaders of volunteers in every conceivable type of organization and setting. Despite this diversity, all share a common passion for volunteer engagement and a belief in the positive power of people. We encourage you to reach out to fellow CVAs within your networks. We will be developing new ways to help you connect with each other. In the meantime, feel free to contact the CCVA office if you want to locate CVAs in your area.

Spread the Word

We also hope that you will be talking up CVA certification with your colleagues who may not yet know about CVA. Our Marketing Toolbox offers you everything you need to help promote CVA certification to your colleagues, including PowerPoint slides, table signs, fact sheets, sample TWEETS, and ideas for local promotion.
