SAVMA Awards and Volunteer Fair 2022 and 2023

In November 2021, the SAVMA Board of Directors discussed the SAVMA Awards and Volunteer Fair 2022 and 2023 plans. Due to COVID-19, we reimagined the 2020 SAVMA Fair and cancelled the SAVMA Awards in 2021. In late 2021, with the rise of COVID-19 cases and the spread of the Omicron variant, we cancelled the SAVMA Awards 2022. However, it was agreed that SAVMA still wants to honor the amazing work done by individuals and organizations throughout Southern Arizona in response to the pandemic. 

The community has stepped up in amazing ways over the last two years. Organizations have adapted to community needs and shifted models. Volunteers have gone above and beyond, all in support of their fellow community members. Therefore, the Board voted to combine the SAVMA Volunteer Fair held at Reid Park Zoo with the SAVMA Awards in a unique way for April 2022. The SAVMA Volunteer Fair is highlighting service activities with Community Service Recognitions. This honor is traditionally given at the SAVMA Awards event. However, this year we look forward to bringing them to the reimagined event.

Meredith Bode, SAVMA Board Member and Program and Events Chair, will be the chair for this event. The event planning committee invites more people join. Additional details to follow in on sponsorships and volunteer opportunities in January. We can’t wait to put this event together and invite all of Southern Arizona organizations that support volunteers to consider participation.
