BIO

I am what you might call an “elder” in the field of volunteerism.  Much of my career has been spent contributing to and supporting the notion of volunteer administration as a profession.  This concept was vitally important to me as I advanced through various jobs, honed my skills, earned the CVA credential, and sought to articulate to others the value of my work as a mobilizer and leader of volunteers. 
There are certainly those who have argued in the past – and still do today – that volunteer administration is not a real “profession”, but rather an occupation.  Regardless of this debate, most would agree that having a code of ethics and certification are two of the lynchpin characteristics of any profession. 
CCVA offers these programs and resources to support individual practitioners who want to document and declare their commitment to excellence in mobilizing and managing volunteer engagement.   I join them in their passion for the value of this work, and the need to continue to raise its visibility and credibility.   No matter what our title, job description, or organizational affiliation, we must embrace our common ground as credible, competent and ethical professionals.  Our volunteers, our organizations and our communities deserve no less.
