The Cancer Action Coalition of Virginia began as the Cancer Plan Advisory Committee in 1998, when the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) convened a small group to begin writing a statewide cancer plan. Once the plan was completed, VDH received funding for a Comprehensive Cancer Prevention and Control project from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). In 2003, the Cancer Plan Advisory Committee became the Cancer Plan Action Coalition (CPAC) of Virginia and a transitional executive board was formed to oversee development of by-laws and ensure implementation of the cancer plan. CPAC continued to grow and in 2005 the first elected executive committee took office. Teleconferencing capabilities allowed for volunteer members to attend quarterly meetings in five regions of the Commonwealth. In 2012, the name was changed to the Cancer Action Coalition of Virginia, the organization became a 501c3, and work began on the third version of the Virginia Cancer Plan.
The purpose of  the CACV is to facilitate statewide collaborations of organizations and individuals  to focus on  activities related to objectives contained in the state plan.
CEO Statement
At this time, CACV does not have a CEO or Executive Director.  The organization is comprised of volunteers throughout the cancer healthcare field.  The State of Virginia has currently provided funding for the majority of CACV programs. The goal is to become financially independent so that CACV can provide more support to the cancer survivors and potential cancer patients. 
Board Chair Statement

* Formally achieved non-profit status as a 501c-3 organization in 2012

* Have recruited diverse members who have a shared passion for improving awareness and access to cancer services across the state.

* Engagement of local and state legislators in our Cancer Caucus. Have provided data and constituent impact stories related to policy on increased access to oral chemotherapy, radon, and clean air act.

* Created and implemented state plan as a road map to reduce the burden of cancer in Virginia. Community projects and education include sun safety, personalized medicine, HPV vaccine, palliative care, survivorship, and patient navigation.


* Infrastructure - As the coalition continues to grow, we need to ensure to structure our governance and membership teams to maximize engagement and project outcomes. We are currently initiating a strategic planning process to evaluate and implement opportunities to reorganize and grow for a sustainable future.

* Member engagement - the coalition has members across the state. Some of our members live five hours away from our meeting locations. In today's economy, not all organizations are able to provide travel reimbursement for members to attend meetings. Thus, we are implementing technology to have more virtual meetings and are exploring regional meetings to help engage members and target needs of the local community.
