What is an affiliate?

An affiliate is a group of volunteer administrators, who have joined together in their local area to network and discuss the challenges - and possible solutions - in the volunteer world. NCAVA provides information, education and consultation to affiliates. NCAVA's Regional Directors are there to assist affliates. You can find your area's Regional Director by visiting the About Us page.


Why be a member of an affiliate?

Similar to NCAVA, affiliates provide education and professional growth opportunities through ongoing workshops and training courses. The opportunity to earn free credits toward certification as a Certified Administrator of Volunteers in North Carolina (CAVNC) is an honor. Networking opportunities allow for mentoring and peer support which is invaluable.


Why Should an affiliate become a member of ncava?

An affiliate gains distinction from being associated with NCAVA, which is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. They are given leadership materials, access to NCAVA communications, information about NCAVA training, and leadership support.

Affliates can join NCAVA for $25 a year (member year is from January - December). Affiliates receive workshop ideas, if needed, assistance with hosting events, and the opportunity to have their workshops endorsed by NCAVA so members can work towards becoming a Certified Volunteer Administrator in North Carolina.
