Alison Jones-Nassar

We did certify as a Service Enterprise in October 2020...interested to know what parts of that process count as "part of job" and what parts could count as PDUs....
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
32:08
Thanks Alison! I will make sure I ask the question for you.
Heather Pulley
32:30
I assume those essay topics are also found on the website?
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
33:17
Yes, in the renewal guidelines https://cvacert.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/01/CVA-Renewal-Guidelines-2021.pdf

Does a conference count as 1 PDU, or is it 1 PDU per day or per session?
Tara Gilroy-Scott
38:47
Conference registration "thank you for registering" e-mailing is this sufficient?
Alison Jones-Nassar
38:54
Do receipts and confirmation of registration count as documentation?
Stephanie Sparrow Hughes
39:02
will virtual seminars count since most are not in person now
Susan Bertoldi
39:06
My organization has a leadership certificate that requires you to take 6 courses. Would this qualify for workshops
Ashley Gelleny
39:38
would a general leadership workshop count
Diane Weiner
39:39
I have attended conferences that did not include hours on the certificate, how should that be handled for auditing purposes.
Michele Wiesner
39:59
If it’s been a few years since the event, what if we’re unable to find someone at the same organization who can confirm that we attended?
Heather Pulley
40:51
Conference notes would count?
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA

Debbie Dunwell
47:09
I am the Executive Director and founder of a non profit and we are volunteer driven. I run the volunteer program as well. I do not have a supervisor. Can my board be my a supervisor. Trying to start up a non profit has taken all my time. If I don't have all the pdu done by deadline and if I need to do it a year later do I need to start from scratch and write the exam again.
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
48:45
Hi Debbie. We do not have an extension for renewal-I believe Faiza will address that later. I will ask about your board to Faiza in just a moment.
Christine Eckles
49:31
Would completion of a local Leadership Institute count for the leadership program - for example Greater Des Moines Leadership Institute - Community Leadership Program
Michael Mulhern
50:30
For relevant certifications completed through platforms such as Coursera, which are taught by college departments; should these to be tracked as online self learning PDUs or are these eligible to be tracked as college level courses in the post-secondary education category?
Joan Gunderson-Palmer
50:31
Are there more specific requirements for "Leadership Programs"? I did one that was intensive (4 weekends) and covered a broad range of topics, but it wasn't a "Certificate" program.
Joan Gunderson-Palmer
50:56
Thanks - that answered my question I believe.
Rena Crowder
51:26
My apologies, I need to move to another meeting. Thanks for the information.
Karen stephenson
52:29
I'm so sorry. I need to leave. Thank you for this information.
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
53:15

Vicky Medley
54:19
What about DEI related courses and trainings? They are related to volunteer management, but can you verify they are acceptable?
Traci Lato-Smith
54:21
I've been tracking my PDUs in the old Excel tracking spreadsheet - can I submit that, or do I need to copy everything over to the Word document?
Kim Rogers-Hatfield
54:51
If your supervisor is verifying multiple categories can it be in one email or separate emails for each categories?
Traci Lato-Smith
54:52
Thanks!
Susan Bryan
54:53
Would presenting at a conference fall into this category?
Rose Morgan
55:12
If the published materials are specific for our organizations network acceptable
Debbie Dunwell
55:18
I have developed my own training programs for volunteers, the community and clinical teams on the impacts of volunteerism in age care and dementia can I get 30 PDU's if I have proof of my public speaking, workshops and teaching that I deliver?
Trish McGuire
55:37
If the blog post is posted on your work website does that count or is that considered within the job?
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
57:25
Since we have so many specific examples to individuals, please email Faiza at execdir@cvacert.org
Michele Wiesner
57:45
Just to be clear, 500 words = 2 PDUs…so if the published piece is 1,000 words, then it would equal 4 PDUs?
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
58:42

Tara Gilroy-Scott
59:12
Sorry I think I might have missed the answer to this question asked earlier. If your supervisor is verifying multiple categories can it be in one email or separate emails for each categories?
Patricia Nabti
59:50
What if you are co-teaching with someone else can you get the full time that you both are teaching a session?
Patricia Nabti
01:01:56
You speak of something being part of your job… if you are doing the work as a volunteer but it is part of your volunteer job - can you count it?
Diane Weiner
01:02:24
I am an officer of a professional Volunteer Administrators organization in my area for this year 2021. Can I use the 5 points for this year if I submit my CVA recertification early since the CVA does not expire until December 2021 when my office term expires.
Stephanie Sparrow Hughes
01:03:30
volunteer leadership in any area or does it relate to volunteerism.
Doug Rouse
01:08:11

Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
01:09:48
and email Faiza at execdir@cvacert.org
Susie Ryks
01:11:10
Do you suggest putting all our PDUs in or to limit to just 35 PDU?
Emily Ford
01:11:18
Thank you tremendously for all of this valuable, helpful information! I will have to hop off in about 5 minutes for another meeting.
Michele Wiesner
01:11:35
Can we wait to submit the $140 fee until we know the rest of our renewal has been approved?
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
01:12:29
execdir@cvacert.org
Susan Bertoldi
01:12:39
How many years back can you go for items to submit to PDU. Could you submit items from 2016 up to 2021?
Susie Ryks
01:14:23
What is the time frame of when we would know if we are approved?
Elizabeth Griffith
01:14:34
I can just barely hear Faiza's kids in the background. this is a great recording and really helpful information. Appreciate that you all took the time to offer this to us all!
Alison Jones-Nassar
01:15:22
Is there an early bird discount this year or it's the same amount until December?
Michael Mulhern
01:15:38
Can we pay now if we intend to renew by the end of the year? Meaning we might pay before our renewal packet arrives?
Diane Weiner
01:15:53
Is this certification renewed for another 5 years
Lisa Marie Porter, MA, CVA
01:18:44
execdir@cvacert.org for early payments pre-submitting paperwork and due to special circumstances
Michael Mulhern
01:19:30
I apologize as I know this was answered before but now I am a bit confused. If I participated in live webinars as they were being presented do I count these as in person workshops/seminars since they were live and I was able to ask questions and engage with the presenters? Or are these e-learning self-study?
Alice Donahue
01:24:10
Thank you!
Tara Gilroy-Scott
01:24:11
Thank you! Truly appreciated.
Diane Weiner
01:24:19

Lezlie Carter
01:24:23
What about if I GET to go to a conference as a part of my job (I don't get to go every year) and chose to attend sessions related to volunteers, can that still count?
Trish McGuire
01:24:35
Thank you!
Lezlie Carter
