Earn Your Mark of Excellence: CVA Registration Open Until March 1

SmileHabitatVolunteer Managers: There’s still time to make this the year you become Certified in Volunteer Administration.

March 1 is the deadline to join with other leaders in the field and take the next step in your career with a “Certified in Volunteer Administration” (CVA) credential.

Not only will having a CVA credential give you more confidence in your ability to professionally manage a volunteer program, your organization will love being able to showcase its commitment to having great staff members. It’s a win-win!

The CVA program was originally developed by the Association for Volunteer Administration. Today, the program is administered by the Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration, an independent group dedicated to promoting and certifying excellence in volunteer administration.

(At VolunteerMatch, our own volunteer manager, Jennifer Bennett, recently obtained her certification. You can read about her journey here.)

To qualify for the CVA program, you must have at least three years of professional volunteer management experience. The deadline for registration is March 1, 2010.

Visit www.cvacert.org to print a copy of the 2010 Candidate Handbook containing details and the registration form. You can also listen to a brief podcast about the CVA program
