IMPORTANT – Come join the AVA Board!


Come join the AVA Board!  


The Association of VAWA Administrators (AVA) is seeking new board members to be voted in during our spring meeting!

AVA leadership should be reflective of our VAWA membership across the country through representation from various geographic regions, VAWA staff who are new to the field, those that have years of experience and ensuring that the Board reflects diversity in race, ethnicity and gender.

We want and need you to help lead our VAWA Administrators through these unprecedented times!

Some key things to think about:

  • AVA Board members serve two-year terms which can be renewed up to 3 times.
  • AVA Board members meet monthly to talk about the needs of our peers.
  • AVA Board members communicate with OVW to maintain constant communication regarding upcoming solicitations, changes, trends, trainings, and more.
  • AVA Board members usually dedicate about 1-2 hours a month! Yep, that is it, but that time is powerful!

We need your vision, we need your voice.  We know you are interested in joining this creative leadership group, so please complete the attached form and email it to

When I receive your form I will call you to provide more information about serving on the Board, general time commitment, election process, etc.

Thank you in advance for your interest in serving on the AVA Board!
