The AVVBA New Member Orientation Process

To enhance a new member’s familiarity and integration into AVVBA, new members will be afforded the opportunity for a formal orientation that will be scheduled quarterly, either after or before a regular monthly lunch meeting. New member orientations will be offered to all members who joined less than a year ago.  Selected active AVVBA members will conduct the orientations. The following items will be covered in the orientation:

  • Gather from new members their personal interests such as hobbies, sports, etc., to help connect them with other members sharing similar interests.
  • Gather information regarding new members’ occupation, education, religious affiliation (if applicable)
  • Photo of the new member will be taken for the AVVBA website
