CVA Action Board meets with the CVA Board of Trustees

Tonight, the CVA Action Board had an extraordinarily positive meeting with the CVA Board of Trustees. The CVA Action Board had a list of key items to discuss, and the CVA Board of Trustees were receptive to all of the items. Full disclosure of the financial report is scheduled to be shared with CVA Action Board. We expect a response to other key items within the next 2 days. Based on our meeting, we are increasingly optimistic that we will be celebrating CVA’s 100th anniversary in 2024.

P.S. We showed the CVA Voice student video to the CVA Board of Trustees.
