The 9th annual NPAW in 2018 had more than 400 reported events across the United States, Canada, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, Indonesia, and the United Kingdom. This was the largest NPAW ever.To learn more about past and future events, please visit the NPAW page.
National Volunteer Appreciation Week will be held from April 7 - 13, 2019. During this week, the NPA outreach committee will highlight the contributions of volunteers in the NPA membership and celebrate all of their accomplishments. Be on the lookout for articles and shout-outs to all of the great volunteers who support the NPA!
