NOVAA Board of Directors

NOVAA is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. Board of Directors serve a minimum one-year term from July-June, and board members support the NOVAA committees and workgroups that guide the organization.

All members are encouraged to take their turn to serve on the Board of Directors. Not only will you support NOVAA and the volunteer leader community, but serving on a board of a nonprofit is a great resume and experience builder. 

Interested in joining the NOVAA board? Applications are now open for 2021-22!

We are currently seeking board members to fill the following roles, specifically:

  • Secretary
  • DEI Chair *newly created
  • Membership Chair
  • Board Development Chair
  • Workshop Chair/Co-chairs
  • Members At Large

See all positions positions here and apply by May 2.

We have two info sessions coming up, and would love to see you there to share more about the NOVAA Board and answer any questions:

If you are unable to join us for an info session, let us know you are interested by using this NOVAA Board Interest Form, or reach out at boarddevelopment@novaa.org with any questions.

We can't wait to get to know you!
