Peer Networking to Inspire, Educate and Support Volunteerism.
The Volunteer Administration Alliance is committed to bringing you opportunities for engagement, learning, and connection that SCAVA provided and continuing to grow the profession of volunteer management.
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.
- Membership in the peer network is available to all Together SC member organization staff whose primary duties include recruiting, retaining, and coordinating volunteers. At the time of the network’s creation, all current SCAVA members became peer network members. Any SCAVA members not affiliated with Together SC member organizations will be granted an Associate membership for their current SCAVA membership period.
- The Network manages an active Peer Network ListServ Group so members can connect online to discuss current trends, advocacy needs, and more.
- The Network also hosts gatherings (in-person and virtual) throughout the year to help members engage with each other in meaningful dialogue.
How Do I Join a Peer Network Listserv Group?
Join the community of your Together SC Peer Network! As a member of a peer network you can join one or more Peer Network Listserv Groups, a virtual community that allows you to share questions, resources and stay closely connected to your peers. These Peer Network Listserv Groups are moderated by Together SC staff and the Peer Network Leadership Teams.
The President appoints the Leadership Team and will be composed of Peer Network members, with regional representation 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. To apply to join the Leadership Team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and include your resume. Members are informed of their election to the Leadership Team in June before their year of service in July.
The Leadership Team is responsible for:
- Planning periodic learning opportunities for the Peer Network.
- Recommending Volunteer Management Session topics for the Nonprofit Summit.
- Collaborating with the SC Service Commission on the annual Governor’s Volunteer Awards and learning opportunities.
- Maintaining communication and partnerships with and among local volunteer administration networks.
