ABOUT THE NCVA
The year 2020 marks the 38th anniversary of the Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) servicing Northern California from the Oregon border to Bakersfield including Northern Nevada.
Under USA Volleyball, the national governing body for the sport of volleyball in the United States, the Northern California Region became incorporated as a non-profit corporation called the Northern California Volleyball Association, NCVA, in 1982. The NCVA abides by the rules set forth by USA Volleyball; however, it operates as a completely separate business entity. The NCVA hosts and approves competition, fellowship play, clinics, leagues and tournaments. The NCVA also hosts three National Qualifying Tournaments for USA Volleyball. In addition, the NCVA aids in the development of players, coaches, referees and scorekeepers. The longevity of our service has enabled us to create strong ties to the volleyball community, which, in turn will help us to reach out to our members as well as other players, parents and coaches within the community.
To promote participation in a quality program that provides a positive and safe athletic environment through a variety of developmental and competitive opportunities for junior players of all ages, skill levels, and diverse groups.
To create a diverse and varied system of competition and develop education and training programs for all players and participants. The NCVA will create non-discriminatory entry-level playing opportunities that will create reciprocal relationships for inter-regional, national, intra-regional, and international competition.
As we continue striving to uphold our mission of supporting and developing NCVA programs, community volleyball programs and organizations, actively collecting and distributing volleyball-related information, providing educational opportunities for the regional volleyball community while working in conjunction with volleyball’s national governing body, we look forward to increasing our membership base for the new season.
The NCVA is a non-profit 501(C)(3) Organization
The Northern California Volleyball Association (NCVA) is a California nonprofit corporation founded in 1982 and organized exclusively for charitable purposes within the meaning of Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. NCVA is registered with the California Attorney General’s Registry of Charitable Trusts, and it fulfills all of the non-profit organization requirements set by the State of California including, but not limited to, the California State requirement for a yearly financial statement audit by independent certified public accountants.
As to date, and with each audit, the NCVA’s financial statements have received top grades. The audits are conducted in accordance with auditing standards generally accepted in the United States. A financial audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by NCVA, as well as evaluating the overall financial statement presentation.
Audits are made to comply with California State requirements and to point out the transparency with which the NCVA conducts its finances. Even if this was not a requirement from California, the NCVA would still continue to do audits.
It makes sense to provide both our customers and our membership community an additional sense of comfort when dealing with the NCVA. By doing yearly audits you can clearly see that the NCVA engages in sound financial management with proper, tested, procedures and policies in place.
Additionally, the organization has already implemented sundry suggestions regarding improved documentation and clarity of procedures in written manuals to move controls policy and implementation towards best practices. Importantly, the auditors had very positive, complimentary things to say about the skill levels and hard work displayed by our finance and accounting staff. The NCVA will continue the yearly audits to ensure that the organization maintains its books, records, and financial reporting according to generally accepted accounting principles.
