Volunteer Administrators Alliance

Peer Network

As of Dec 31, 2020, the SC Association for Volunteer Adminstration has dissolved and become a peer network within Together SC. Please stay tuned for more information about this new peer network!

PURPOSE

As the successor to the SC Association for Volunteer Administration, Together SC’s Volunteer Admin Alliance Peer Network will continue its work to inspire, educate, and support leaders of volunteers, as a part of Together SC’s mission to unite, strengthen, and advance South Carolina’s nonprofit and philanthropic sectors.

PEER NETWORK MEMBERSHIP

Membership in the peer network is available to all Together SC member organization staff whose primary duties include the recruitment, retention, and coordination of volunteers. At the time of the network’s creation, all current SCAVA members will become members of the peer network. Any SCAVA members who are not affiliated with Together SC member organizations will be granted an Associate membership for the duration of their current SCAVA membership period.

The Leadership Team is appointed by the President and will be composed of Peer Network members, with at least one member nominated from each of the former SCAVA local affiliate networks and the SC Service Commission. All Leadership Team members will serve a one-year term – July 1 through June 30 and may be re-appointed.
