What They Are Saying

THVP membership has allowed me to make contacts across the state. I have made professional and lifelong friends that are there to help, advise, cry with and laugh with! The original intent was to join a professional organization to teach me more about volunteer management and the reality is they’ve taught me more than that. It’s a wonderful group of individuals and I’m proud to be a member of THVP.
