AL!VE and Energize Partner on Expanded Association Directory
As a follower of Energize, you probably know that our site hosts the only online directory of DOVIAs (Directors of Volunteers in Agencies) and other professional associations in the field of volunteer management, however, it’s always been a struggle to keep that resource up to date and comprehensive. As a result, Energize and AL!VE (Association of Leaders in Volunteer Engagement) are partnering in an effort to actively seek out this information from the people directly involved in their region’s professional associations.
Want to know how you can help? It’s easy! AL!VE and Energize have created a survey that you can take to provide us with your association’s information as well as letting us know the different ways in which your organization functions. We will use this information to update and expand our current list in hopes that we can make it easier for the people in our profession to network, and to share their professional experience and expertise.
If you are a member of a professional association for leaders of volunteers, whether local, state/provincial, or regional, please first check the existing directory to see whether it is already listed or not. Then contact the best person in your association to respond to the survey on its behalf (or, of course, do it yourself), whether to identify your group for the first time or to update your information.
The survey will run from now through September 30. The survey and the Directory can be accessed both through the AL!VE Web site and the Energize site.
