MAVA Connections
MAVA Connections is a member benefit that provides opportunities to share experiences and resources for the development of both our professional skills and volunteer programs. Each gathering will focus on a topic of interest - there will not be a formal presentation, so bring your ideas and questions to add to the conversation. Join us to build your network and expand your toolbox; together we can help each other work smarter, not harder.

MAVA Connections gatherings take place on the third Thursdays of even-numbered months from 11:30 am to 1 pm; they are hosted by members of MAVA's Professional Development Committee at MAVA or MAVA member organizations. Please feel free to bring your lunch; beverages and dessert will be provided. See below for the next MAVA Connections topic and a link to registration for the gathering. MAVA Connections is offered at no charge; your registration helps us plan for space and refreshments.
