• AVP may reimburse any expenses incurred in conducting a workshop. Local groups may decide whether or not to pay facilitators for conducting workshops.

Questions? The Business Meeting that approved the Bylaws and Policy changes at the Annual National Gathering took place over the course of five hours. The people present participated in serious conversations about the implications of the changes for the wider AVP community. These conversations should be ongoing in local and regional groups in order for the changes to have the most positive impact on AVP.
