Each year the AHVRP Board President approves an Annual Conference Planning Committee, a small group of AHVRP members with longstanding professional expertise. This committee is responsible for identifying and selecting speakers who deliver original, creative and innovative programming to address the challenges of volunteer management professionals, gift shop managers, volunteer leaders, volunteers and auxilians. 

All submissions will be reviewed and selected based on several key elements, including:

  • Content relevance to the profession and body of knowledge of the Certified Administrator of Volunteer Services (CAVS) credential
  • Quality of learning objectives with measurable outcomes and actionable items from the presentation
  • Thoroughness of subject matter and proposal

Proposals are evaluated using the following additional criteria:

  • Content that is current and practical, cutting edge or innovative, as it relates to volunteer management in health care setting.
  • Programs and initiatives that demonstrate measurable business impact and results.
  • Focused learning objectives that can be met in the time allotted.
  • Clear, specific and informative content that is directly linked to the learning objectives.
  • Relevance to the conference theme.
