Professional Development

FVA Weekly Zoom Meet-Ups - now open to members and non-members! 

Please join us each Thursday at 10:00am for our weekly Zoom call to brainstorm ideas on how to continue to engage volunteers during COVID-19. Members will receive an email with the meeting topic on Wednesdays (the day before each scheduled call). Non-members are free to join - just contact us at [email protected]. We hope you can join us for this invaluable opportunity to connect, share and learn with each other! 


Professional development programs are one of the keystone benefits that the Forum for Volunteer Administrators offers to individuals involved in the leadership and management of volunteers. These outstanding programs are designed to give a wide variety of knowledge-based, skill-building information that can be immediately implemented into daily management tasks and stored for future reference.
Refer to our calendar of events for information about upcoming programs or subscribe to our mailing list to receive program announcements and registration forms.

  • Your organization provides services to its consumers via volunteer service
  • You are charged with the management of the volunteer program, including all supporting policies, procedures, protocols and tools

  • You are earning CEUs
  • You want to network and communicate with other volunteer managers in Northeast Ohio
  • You want to position yourself to your employer as a valued employee
  • You want your volunteers to recognize you as a "best practices" volunteer manager
