What is CVA?

Certified in Volunteer Administration (CVA) is an international professional certification in the field of volunteer resources management. This credential recognizes practitioners who meet specified standards as measured through an examination developed by their peers. Successful candidates who earn the credential may use the designation "CVA" after their name. 

How can NOVAA support your CVA preparation? 

NOVAA members who are pursuing CVA certification are encouraged to contact the NOVAA Professional Development Committee. They will help connect you to others who are also studying for the CVA exam, with the suggestion that you form a study group. Set up your own dates and time to review material, interact with Q & A, and prepare for the exam. For more information,  email
