New Management

The Association for Healthcare Volunteer Resource Professionals (AHVRP) is proud to announce that the CAVS certification process is now being managed by CCVA (Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration). AHVRP is pleased to continue offering this credential that recognizes its members as proficient in their field. This transition to CCVA offers new opportunities to strengthen our profession of volunteer management while making the certification process more affordable for everyone.

  3. 3. MADHVS board goals and achievements
    The MADHVS board set two main goals for the 2009/2010 calendar. We wanted to invest in membership education and revamp the website in order to better facilitate membership communication.

    By holding four outstanding education programs in addition to the Principles course, the board feels confident that we met our goal to invest in membership education.

    Sue Morgan has tirelessly worked to update and maintain the MADHVS website. The recent additions of the distribution lists by areas and current membership lists add important features and information for all members.

    I applaud the efforts of the board in the achievement of these goals!
