The purpose of DOVIA (Directors of Volunteers in Agencies) is to share needs and resources concerning all aspects of volunteer management, development of working relationships among groups and individuals, provide education and training to all who support volunteerism, and to offer the opportunity for networking among volunteer agencies.
Our chapter was organized in 1988 by a steering committee of five volunteer managers from a variety of human service agencies. Sioux Empire DOVIA is led by an executive committee of officers.
DOVIA is dedicated to:
- Promoting volunteerism within the community.
- Promoting professionalism in the field of volunteer management.
- Providing an opportunity for networking among volunteer leaders.
- Keeping volunteer leaders aware of educational opportunities.
