How Can SAVMA Help? - COVID-19 Response
SAVMA wants to support and learn from our communities volunteer engagement professionals.
In an effort to do this, we have created a short 12 question survey with a focus on what your organizations and volunteer programs are experiencing during this time of uncertainty. We hope to not only hear your feedback and voice, but also find out what we can do the same or differently in the future for our programs IF a similar situation arises.
