Leadership

MVMA is a member-driven organization in every way. MVMA exists for the benefit and advancement of volunteer managers and every aspect of the organization is centered on building a strong, knowledgeable group of volunteer leaders in the St. Louis metro area. Thus, it makes sense that MVMA is ultimately governed by its membership. The MVMA Board of Directors is an all-volunteer board reporting to the general membership. MVMA operates within the belief that a member-led Board of Directors is a way for the membership to invest in the future success of their profession and of MVMA.
