Membership Benefits

The mission of FADVS is to promote the skills of volunteer resource management through quality education, professional alliances and leadership development. We do this through a certification program, ongoing educational topics and networking.

A recent Annual Meeting included presentations, networking, and a vendor fair benefitting those involved in gift shop management. Our educational topics were:

1) “More than Stars,”  customer service initiatives presented by Mary McCormack

2) “Building Relationships with Community Partners Through Employee Volunteerism” on the value of engaging our employees with our communities, by Paulette Myzel

3) “Maximizing Your Workforce” shared by Jennifer Poole Wood, MSW, CDVS

4) “Journey to Create a Palliative Care Program” shared by Gerry Sanabria, CDVS
