The CVA Credential: Excellence in Volunteer Administration

Do you lead volunteer engagement in your organization? Have you considered professional certification?  Did you know registration for the 2012 CVA (Certified in Volunteer Administration) exam ends March 1st?

As the President of VolunteerMatch and former Board Chair of the CCVA it is my pleasure to congratulate the CVA class of 2011 and welcome our 2012 candidates.

The CVA is not for everyone, but if you have a minimum of of three years experience and are ready to demonstrate your knowledge, skill and competence in the field of volunteer engagement, I invite you to learn more about earning this mark of excellence.

The CCVA is dedicated to promoting and certifying excellence in volunteer engagement to advance the capacity of communities to effectively engage volunteers. The CVA itself is awarded to candidates who are able to demonstrate successfully their knowledge and ability to apply skills required for competent volunteer management through a process of testing and peer portfolio review.

More than 1,100 talented leaders have already earned their CVA and the numbers are growing every year.

If you’d like to learn more about enrolling this year please visit and review the 2012 CVA Candidate Handbook.

Registration is $265, but if you are a registered VolunteerMatch member it is only $225 if you hurry. Registration ends Thursday, March 1st, 2012.

I am proud to support the CVA, recognize the distinguished individuals it attracts and wish the class of 2012 the best of luck.
