NOVAA is a nonprofit association for volunteer management professionals, founded in 1982. Volunteer-led, NOVAA offers a variety of programming designed to support the professional development of leaders of volunteers with all levels of expertise. Whether you are just starting out or have been in the field for many years, NOVAA has something to offer everyone - become a member today!
We remain committed to providing support and resources for leaders in volunteer management, all our 2020 programming will be hosted remotely. We look forward to seeing you soon!
NOVAA stands in solidarity with social justice movements across the country speaking up and taking action for the lives and rights of Black, Indigenous and People of Color communities.
To truly serve our members, we acknowledge the need to understand the impacts of systemic racism within our organization and the greater community. Despite past efforts, we have struggled to enact diversity equity and inclusion practices that have led to tangible actions, but we are evaluating ways we can make change, and we will share our commitments and planned actions with you in the coming months.
As we are a community organization, we would love to hear from NOVAA members. Please share your thoughts and suggestions, and hold us accountable as we work to create an equitable and safe organization, community and society.
In humble solidarity,
Northwest Oregon Volunteer Administrators Association
