Why is a professional association, such as NYAVA, important to you and your career?
A professional association, such as NYAVA, is important to me and my career because it keeps me up-to-date on tools, resources and policies when it comes to volunteer management. The NYAVA workshops I attend helps sharpens my skills in creating fresh new ideas for workshops and projects for both staff and volunteers within my organization.
