Who We Are – 2021

Welcome to the Richmond Village Association

The RVA is more than a small community of volunteers working for the betterment of the Village of Richmond. Every resident, business owner/manager and property owner in Richmond is a member of the RVA! There is no membership fee: – the generosity of volunteers, business sponsors, donors and advertisers combined with funds raised through events sustain our activities.

Our mission is to work with residents, local organizations, businesses and various levels of government to support and develop our community with programs for all residents. We strive to be proactive on issues concerning Richmond residents; to form opinions, reach a consensus and then present a particular viewpoint to necessary levels of government where the interests of Richmond residents may be affected.

We are involved in numerous community projects and events, as well as promoting village pride and identity. The appeal of our community is evident to all who live here. We are an incorporated association with an elected Board. We actively seek the input and involvement of all who comprise the community of Richmond and can always use more volunteers to better our community.

Check our Home Page for the time and place of our next General Meeting. All residents are welcome to attend RVA general meetings.

If you would like to be reminded of meetings or wish to be contacted when key issues are identified please sign up for RVA email alerts. If you wish to place an item on the agenda, want to become involved in any of our activities or wish to offer a comment, please contact us here.
We welcome your input and involvement. Your Board of Directors endeavours to serve the interests of members at large.
