Time to Renew Your CARV Membership

CARV's membership year is July 1 through June 30*. Annual suggested dues are $15. Dues and donations are CARV's only sources of revenue to support our projects and activities.

Your gift will allow CARV to continue to support local PCVs through the Peace Corps Partnership Program, fund special projects, hold events for area RPCVs, and meet our operating expenses (NPCA affiliation fee, web site fees, supplies, etc.).

Payment of dues is voluntary, but is strongly encouraged, based on a member's financial circumstances. Likewise, CARV welcomes support above the suggested $15.

No one is denied membership in CARV, even if unable to contribute $15. CARV values its members and recognizes it may not be possible for some to contribute at this time.

Two Easy Ways To Support CARV:

(1) Join the National Peace Corps Association

Join the National Peace Corps Association and designate CARV as your local Group affiliate. CARV receives $15 when you join or renew. NPCA is a 501(c)3 organization and your membership is tax deductible. We encourage everyone to consider joining NPCA, at http://peacecorpsconnect.org/membership.

(2) Donate by Cash or Check

Make checks payable to "CARV” and mail to Barry Adamson, CARV Treasurer. Mail checks to Barry at 744 Springfield Pike., Cincinnati, OH 45215. Please contact him if you have any questions: barry.adamson@gmail.com, or 513-720-4569. Note: Your donation made directly to CARV is NOT tax deductible.

* NPCA EXCEPTION: If your membership in CARV is through our parent organization, the National Peace Corps Association, then your membership year will remain as it is with NPCA.

CARV Directory

Annually, CARV offers members the opportunity to be listed in the CARV Directory. This is an “opt in” listing. Only those who choose to be included are listed. The minimum requirements to be listed are that you provide your name, Peace Corps country of service, and the year(s) you served. Current Volunteers may also be listed.

Many members also choose to include their e-mail address, street address, phone #, and information about their PC assignment. Any or all of this information is optional. Attached to this message is the 2014 edition of the directory.

If you are currently in the directory and wish to continue to be listed, you DO NOT need to do anything. If you wish to change any of your information, or if you wish to be removed from the directory, please reply to this message with your updated information.

If you are not currently in the directory, but wish to be added, please reply to Barry Adamson at barry.adamson@gmail.com with your:

- first and last name

- PC country and years of service

- any additional information (e-mail, phone, address, PC assignment, etc.) you choose to include

August 1st will be the cut-off date for being included in the seventh edition of the directory. The updated edition will be sent to all CARV members in early August.

If you have questions, contact Barry Adamson at barry.adamson@gmail.com or at 513-720-4569.

Note: The CARV Directory is only for the use of CARV members. Information in the directory is not to be used for group e-mail messages or to be shared beyond CARV. Thank you.
