We will be offering the AHVRP Principals Course
For the experienced volunteer administrator, The Principles Course reviews the fundamental up-to date information for volunteer management. For the new manager, it is an opportunity to learn, relearn, discuss and experience the rationale behind volunteer program design. Principles is also a training and development tool for AHVRP members who are planning to pursue their CAVS certification. The mix of both experienced and new administrators in the field offers a unique forum for examining what we do and how we do it. The Principles Courseprovides insight and direction into how volunteer services can impact organization goals and support changes and challenges in the healthcare industry.
