The Louisiana Association of Volunteer Center Directors (LAVCD) focuses on the strengths our volunteer and civic action centers have to engage citizens in meaningful service opportunities.  The LAVCD has been an informal networking association of Louisiana’s volunteer and civic action centers for over 10 years and in 2005 affirmed a new commitment to work together in addressing the state’s social issues through volunteerism.

The LAVCD meets quarterly to share issues and identify areas for partnership and impact.  In past years, it has successfully applied for and implemented grants for strengthening the association and for expanding an online presence through, a portal where volunteers can search and sign up for service opportunities and where organizations can post their volunteer needs.

The LAVCD foresees a future where the people of Louisiana are inspired to serve and actively engaged in improving the quality of life with their fellow citizens.  Most recently its members elected new officers with Nicholas Auck of Volunteer Louisiana as President and Keler Williams of the Acadiana United Way Volunteer Center as Secretary.

The 2014 Goals for LAVCD are to increase the membership by bringing additional volunteer connector agencies into the network, and to increase the participation of members in training and activities designed to improve the promotion of volunteer opportunities throughout the state.  Volunteer connections will continue to be made online, as well as traditional means.  The LAVCD is committed to partner with organizations and ensure they have the capacity to make those connections that will make a positive social impact on the lives of Louisiana’s citizens and their communities.
