The NOVAA Learning Community 

Volunteer management professionals gathering around relevant topics to both teach and learn from their peers in facilitated conversations. 

The NOVAA Learning Community events are free for NOVAA members and partner organizations and $10 for non-members.

Learning Community sessions focus on one relevant topic at a time. The sessions start out with a short presentation or panel discussion, followed by Q&A and an open facilitated discussion. All members are welcome to the NOVAA Learning Community, but participants are expected to review any pre-session reading assignments and be prepared for advanced discussions.
