The Council for Certification in Volunteer Administration recently announced the new Certified Volunteer Administrators (CVA) in the United States. Director of the Volunteers In Action of Central Kansas and AmeriCorps Seniors Programs Linn Hogg is now one of only 6 CVA’s in the state of Kansas. 
 
Hogg said she hopes to use the knowledge she gained to continue to enhance volunteer efforts and organizations in the area. 

“I am very proud that I was able to attain this certification,” she said. “Our organization is strategically looking at how our area engages the volunteers. We now have the expertise, the technology and the network to help area non-profits build their capacity through better volunteer engagement.” 

The Certificate in Volunteer Administration (CVA) is an international professional credential to recognize practitioners in the field of volunteer engagement who meet specified standards as measured through demonstrated professional and academic experience, a commitment to professional ethics, and a certification exam. Professional certification signals a commitment to excellence. It confirms that individuals have the knowledge and expertise needed to attract, onboard and support volunteers. 

Volunteers in Action of Central Kansas is sponsored by Barton Community College and houses an AmeriCorps Seniors (RSVP) program. The organization currently manages more than 300 volunteers who are affiliated with area non-profit agencies, city and county offices as well as in-house programs such as Medical Transportation and Meals On Wheels.
