The VOA quarterly in August, November, February, and May from 7:00-8:00pm at the Council Service Center. One of their key responsibilities is to plan and execute activities throughout the year to provide Venturing Crews throughout the Heart of America Council some activities to supplement the program already planned as a Venturing Crew. Those events include the VOA Winter Event, VOA Awards Banquet, and the VOA Haunted Trails. Ideally, at least one Officer from every Crew in the Council would be in attendance to every VOA meeting.
