Local Professional Associations (DOVIAs)
Prepared by Ivan Scheier
There are approximately 75 pages in this packet, largely through the courtesy of Katie Noyes Campbell, Executive Director of AVA, who identified, copied and returned to me, requested sections of an entire shelf of material in this area, which I donated to AVA in 1995 or 96. My guess is this packet is about 10% of the total materiel in this area, authored by me, 1984-96.
I trust this "Fact Sheet" is self-explanatory and hope there is more recent information of this type - or that is can be developed.
Activating Your Local DOVIA
5 pages, 1984
An early how-to-do-it concentrating on membership incentives.
How to Start or Strengthen
Handbook on How to Start of Strengthen a DOVIA, DOVS, LOVE, or Association by any of a hundred other names. About 60 pages, 1987, pretty rough and ready, for limited circulation, but many of the principles will still apply.
The DOVIA Exhange
A small sample of the approximately 50 "DOVIA Exchange" newsletters published four or six time yearly over the years 1984-95. Target audience was leadership and membership of local professional associations. The later editions done were part of the Grapevine newsletter, and have been included below.
