Statement of Solidarity
Dear Colleagues,

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

Upcoming events

    • December 09, 2020
    • 3:30 PM - 5:00 PM (PST)

    Learning Communities invite volunteer management professionals to gather around relevant topics to both teach and learn from their peers in facilitated conversations.

    Does your organization need a volunteer database or have you been wondering if there is a better database out there that fits your needs? NOVAA Board Member Kristen Van Tuyl will share her experiences and you will have the opportunity to share what databases worked (or did not work) for you! This is a great way to get unbiased reviews of the various VMS available.

    Learning Communities are free for NOVAA Members and members of our partner organizations and just $10 for other guests.

    Due to COVID-19 and nationwide prevention measures, we will be offering this Learning Community remotely via Zoom. A link will be sent to registered participants in your confirmation email.
