The Dallas Association of Directors of Volunteers was established in 1977 by a group of volunteer leaders with a vision. The mission of the DADV is to enhance the professionalism and knowledge of managers of volunteers by providing a forum to share experiences, ideas and skills. DADV meets every third Tuesday at noon at the VNA Meals on Wheels (1440 W. Mockingbird Lane, Dallas, TX 75247) for lunch, a topic/speaker of relevance to volunteer managers and a short business meeting. Half-day workshops and networking lunches are also included in the membership.
DOVIA provides an exciting forum for sharing ideas and experiences with other professionals. Topics of interest about volunteer management are presented at each monthly meeting. Our mission is to promote volunteer management as a profession, provide volunteer management training, allow resource sharing of volunteer management material and promote volunteerism within the community. DOVIA encourages professional development, networking, and joint trainings with other DOVIA affiliates. DOVIA also offers training, scholarships for members, mentoring, and information about state and national volunteer management trends.
