Georgia Society of Volunteer and Retail Professionals

The Georgia Society of Volunteer and Retail Professionals (GSVRP) promotes and enhances organized volunteer programs in a health care organization by providing educational programs, networking opportunities and recognizing service and program excellence.


Society dues are $75/year per society and provide valuable member-only access and discounts on your society annual conference and other educational opportunities throughout the year.


We look forward to proving many opportunities for GSVRP members to connect virtually. Check back often for details on upcoming webinars and events.

The awards honor outstanding service by health care volunteer and retail professionals.

  • The Outstanding Gift Shop Award recognizes gift shops that have enhanced, complemented or promoted the facility's mission and vision through new innovation or successful improvements.
  • The Wyn Award is presented to a GSVRP member for outstanding service and is voted on by the GSVRP Leadership Team. This award is not necessarily given every year, but is presented to someone who has made an exceptional contribution to the society.
