Directors of Volunteers in Austin

Directors of Volunteers in Austin (DOVIA) provides virtual and in-person networking opportunities for volunteer professions in Central Texas. Our mission is to promote volunteer service administration as a profession, facilitate the exchange of information, and promote professional development and education.


DOVIA meets monthly, on the 2nd Thursday of each month, to discuss fun topics and important issues in volunteer management.

We also hold an annual conference in August for professional development and networking. 

We invite professionals, students, and volunteers interested in volunteer program management to participate in our activities.
