    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.

    Connect with fellow volunteer program professionals for a lunchtime social hour. Let’s come together to share ideas and resources that may help each other through these changing and challenging times.

    Remote zoom link access will be provided in your event reminder email.
