THE VICTIM SERVICES PROFESSIONAL NETWORK: Creating Ties That Bind
The purpose of the RVAAM Alumni Association (aka, The Victim Services Professional Network [VSPN]) is to provide a vehicle by which Alumni may assist in the attainment of the goals set forth by the Academy. As such the goals of the Alumni Association are:
As such, the Alumni Association has created a set of committees designed to support these goals. A description of each committee is listed in the left-hand column. The Alumni Association welcomes the active involvement of its members and as such is always looking for more Alums to serve on these committees so they can share their talents and knowledge with their fellow peers.
A HEARTFELT THANKS
The Alumni Association would not be where it is today without the devotion of a select group of individuals who volunteered their time to help create the Association and subsequently serve on its Executive Board as Officers, and supporting members.
For their never-ending dedication to the Alumni Association, we offer our sincerest thanks …
