The Toronto Association for Volunteer Administration (TAVA) provides professional development for our members through educational events, networking, mutual support and raising awareness of the importance of volunteerism in the community.  



TAVA memberships are valid from October 1 - September 30.  New and renewing members can register online and pay via PayPal (using a major credit card) or through requesting an invoice.  The cost is $50 per year and provides members with access to workshops, a discount to TAVA's annual conference, networking opportunities with fellow volunteer engagement professionals, and much more!

Workshop Location: TAVA's business meetings & workshops are held at The Yonge Street Mission - 306 Gerrard Street East. 


Whether they are new to the sector or veterans in the profession, all TAVA members have experiences, ideas, and resources to share. Read about our members and hear their advice to other volunteer engagement professionals. New member spotlight interviews are published monthly!

The Inspiration by Innovation award recognizes a TAVA (Toronto Association for Volunteer Administration) member who has made significant impact in volunteer engagement. The award recipient is someone who has influenced positive change, and has inspired colleagues in the sector by developing innovative approaches or practices that strengthen volunteer engagement in their organization or community.

Christine Martin has been an example for all of us working in the volunteer engagement field. Her innovative approach using Liberating Structures to facilitate professional development sets new standards and inspires other TAVA members. At TAVA meetings, new and seasoned members listen closely to observe her methods and learn from her example.

TAVA is very proud to have Christine as a member and to thrilled to have her as the inaugural recipient of this special award.
