Peer Networking to Inspire, Educate and Support Volunteerism.
As of Dec 31, 2020, the SC Association for Volunteer Adminstration has dissolved and become a peer network within Together SC. 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.
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 became 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.
