Supporting Volunteer Leaders, Strengthing our Community
Kentuckiana Association for Volunteer Adminsitration (KAVA) exists to promote professional standards of excellence in the field of volunteer administration by offering education, training and networking opportunities to local volunteer administrators.
KAVA began over 30 years ago when a small group of volunteer administrators in the Louisville area decided to meet regularly to exchange ideas and share resources. Since that time, the group has grown into a fully functioning 501c3 nonprofit with a rotating board of directors.
Monthly All Member Meetings:
- Relevant and engaging speakers and panel discussion with experts in the field
