Professional associations for volunteer program administrators are nothing new in North America, with the Association for Volunteer Administration (AVA) emerging as far back as 1960 and the Canadian Administrators of Volunteer Resources (CAVR) established in 1972.

While the rest of the world may have been slow to catch up, catch up they have, with a spate of professional associations being developed around the globe over the past decade.

e-Volunteerism invited the Presidents of four of these Associations to share their thoughts about the past, the present and the future of these professional bodies.
