VADA/Nova Needs YOU

It takes a lot of effort to keep the ball rolling so that there are plenty of shows and activities for all of us to enjoy. None of this is possible without the support of our membership.

We need volunteers to make shows and other events happen. You can read about our Volunteer Program and all the rewards of volunteering on this website. Also check out the recent changes to the Volunteer "Bucks" program.
