Looking for Local Leaders

NYSAVT recognizes that there is strength in numbers--and we want to make sure that the association is connecting with our members at the local level--our Districts. We are seeking volunteers who would like to work with the Board of Directors and Staff in rejuvenating NYSAVT's Districts. First we need to create a cadre of volunteers.


What do District Representatives do?

  • Assist in planning and offering continuing education and networking events in their area
  • Encourage new membership and participation in NYSAVT
  • Provide updates to the Board of Directors
  • Shall be a member in good standing from each of the designated areas, to serve a term of appointment of one year and shall be eligible for reappointment

If you would like to be considered, please complete this online form (HERE) - and we will follow-up with you.

Our goal is to hold a virtual meeting with all interested professionals and discuss how to move District revitalization forward.
