AVCA advocacy is built on membership engagement, research, and communication with administrators

The Board of Directors develops strategic principles that guide staff liaisons and, where appropriate, membership surveys inform advocacy positions.

 The AVCA works through conferences, national governing organizations, and state associations to enact legislative or rules-related changes.
