The BVNA operates through several committees, each comprised of a chairperson and a group of volunteers. Read below to learn about each committee and opportunities within each area. Please consider volunteering on one or more committees! Feel free to contact the Chair for more information about how you can get involved.
This committee helps promote BVNA events and projects to encourage community participation and support. Committee members may be called on to interact with media and publications, resident groups, other partnering community organizations, churches, and supporting businesses in promoting BVNA activities.
