Founded in 1983, the Mid Valley Volunteer Managers Association (MVVMA) is a group of professional volunteer managers who meet regularly to exchange ideas, network and participate in professional development opportunities.


MVVMA exists to promote the professional role of the volunteer manager, provide professional development and networking for its members, and to encourage and inspire active participation of volunteers in our communities.
