WAVC stands for Washtenaw Association of Volunteer Coordinators. We’re a group of people who share our work, interest, and passion for leading volunteers.

Volunteers are a special group of people who invest their time to improve their communities. Whether they’re caring for a local park or teaching a neighbor to read, they are doing important work. But to make sure they have the tools they need for those tasks, we need volunteer coordinators.

The goal of WAVC is to create a network for volunteer coordinators through Washtenaw County. This network is to be a source of support, ideas, and knowledge sharing.

How we’re led

WAVC is led by a pair of co-chairs who develop goals and programming from year to year.

How you can get involved

Members of WAVC meet once every other month at differnt locations in the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti area to discuss various topics relating to our work. We meet in January, March, May, July, September, and┬áNovember. If you’re interested in hearing about our upcoming events, please contact wavcchairs@gmail.com.

    The annual conference for Southeastern Healthcare Volunteer Leaders is coming up in April. Although our name says Southeastern, we accept membership and conference attendees nationwide! Would you do me a HUGE favor and share this with your membership?

    Thank you!
