If you are responsible for volunteers in a health care setting, your membership in the Minnesota Association for Volunteer Administration (MAVA) also entitles you to be part of the Administrators of Healthcare Volunteers (AHV). Our network provides training on topics unique to our settings, networking with peers from other healthcare organizations, and most importantly, resources when you need ideas, answers, encouragement, etc.
Providing leadership for volunteers in health care settings has a strong history in Minnesota. The known and yet unknown impacts of healthcare reform and the Affordable Care Act will affect the organizations where we work in the days ahead. It is vitally important that we come together and learn from one another as we navigate these uncharted waters. The AHV Leadership Committee is actively planning training and networking opportunities for 2015.
On February 12, AHV will host a networking session after the MAVA Professional Development program from 12 to 1:00 p.m. Bring a lunch if you wish (no refrigeration available); fruit and cookies will be provided. Discussion topics:
· What is the staffing structure for your volunteer program (titles and division of responsibilities for paid staff)? How has this changed or how do you anticipate changing to accommodate changing needs, such as growth, consolidations and integration?
· What format do you use for an annual report? What is included, how is it presented, who does it go to? Please bring copies to share.
· Burning Questions – what keeps you up at night?
