Certification and Recertification packages are now available at PAVRO Certification Application

Earning a Certificate in Volunteer Resources Management (CVRM) is validation of your professionalism, experience and commitment to the field of Volunteer Engagement.  Many employers recognize the importance of certification as a requirement in our field.

  • Completed certification packages (with accompanying paperwork) must be submitted between October 2017 and January 2018 in order to qualify for presentations at this year’s Annual PAVRO Conference in early May.
  • Submissions received after January 15th may not be eligible to receive certification at Conference if edits required.
  • Adjudicators will review and comment on submissions received between January 15th to February 28th, allowing time for edits to be made if required.
  • Communication of results to authors can be expected in the month of March 2018.
  • Questions regarding the process or personal qualifications may be made in writing to the certification coordinator at: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

A new option this year is for Certification applicants to be matched through the PAVRO Mentor Program with a CVRM PAVRO member to provide support through the process.   Application deadline for the Mentor Program has been extended to October 31st, 2017.
Once CVRM designation received, Recertification is required every three years giving you the incentive to continue your education and stay current in best practices in Volunteer Engagement.

 

KAAAV has started a Facebook page and will be assessing if it is a useful tool for our membership. Please join us at www.facebook.com/kaaav.org. If you are not on Facebook, because it is a public page, you can still view it but you won’t be able to like or share posts, make comments and you will not get a notification when there is a new post. etc. There may be people who are not KAAAV members who would like to join so share where you think it is appropriate. If you have any suggestions or comments about the page, email Eleonor at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
