North Carolina Healthcare Volunteer Professionals (NCHVP) is a statewide organization founded in 1975 for the purpose of providing an organized structure to advance and develop effective volunteer services administration in healthcare, thereby promoting health services.  We accomplish these goals by offering a combination of networking, mentoring, education, professional development, and leadership opportunities to our members.

We at NCHVP encourage and assist our members in developing their knowledge and increasing their competence in the field of Volunteer Service. By providing opportunities for intercommunication between members, developing volunteer programs, and cooperating with both related volunteer services organizations and institutions of higher education, we assist our members in achieving the highest level of volunteer professionalism in the healthcare industry. NCHVP provides educational and networking opportunities for members through workshops, quarterly district meetings, and an annual conference. Eligible members can also participate in the NCHVP Certification Program.
