AVP CA 2020 Fall Gathering!

November 7, 2020 @ 8:00 am - November 8, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Calling all AVP CA Facilitators!

Welcome to the 2020 CA Fall (Annual) Gathering for AVP California planned for November Sat 7th and Sun 8th 2020.

This year, to no surprise, we will be doing a virtual Gathering on Zoom.   Our request is that you complete the registration form and sign up ahead of time using the following link:


All registered participants will receive a zoom link to attend the virtual CA Fall Gathering for Saturday and Sunday.

Optional Friday - Local Councils meet on their own to discuss their activity e.g. highs and lows for the past year etc. 

Please note that there will be no zoom link for the Friday’s Council meets,  as each Council will be arranging this meet on their own. If any assistance is needed with this process on Friday 6th November, please feel free to reach out to Justin (our wonderful tech guru) at

A volunteer from each council will then share the Council updates (discussed on Friday) during the Fall Gathering on Saturday 7th during the morning session 10am-12pm.

The AVP/CA Fall Gathering schedule will be:

Saturday -  10am to 12pm - Local Council reports, Community Building, and Light and Livelies 

2pm to 4pm - Breakout sessions. Once you complete the registration form and select which breakout sessions you are interested in (1st and 2nd choices), a zoom link for that session will be sent so that you can log onto your session directly on Saturday afternoon.

6pm until finished - Live Auction - * additional information below.

Sunday - 10am to 12pm Steering Committee Report, Committee Reports and Nomination and Confirmation of new members.

*LIVE(ish) Auction! 

Bidding will be open for a week (November 1st) and closes on Saturday (7th) at 7pm.    

We are going to be having an online auction that will be open to everyone - not just AVPers. You will be able to invite friends and family to bid on items.  A shareable link will be sent out in October to see the items up for auction and to make bids. We hope you will share the link with your family and friends.    Bids will be finalized at 6pm on Saturday LIVE.  Attendance is not necessary … but should be fun.  Final payments will be made via Pay Pal on AVP California website.   

Additional instructions for Gathering are included in the online registration link and any additional information will be sent to all registered facilitators.
