The International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to the professional education and development of members of the Virtual Assistance profession and to educating the public on the role and function of the Virtual Assistant (VA).
A membership with IVAA provides Virtual Assistants (VAs) several options for continued learning from monthly expert programs, coffee chats, and peer discussions (http://ivaa.org/member-service/) to live and virtual networking and Resource Recess.
Anyone looking to work with a VA, clients as well as other VAs looking to grow their team, can submit a Request for Proposal (RFP). Only IVAA members are afforded the opportunity to respond to Request for Proposals. When a Request for Proposal is submitted, members receive an email notifying them of the Request for Proposal if the category pairs with their skillset and VAs decide if they want to pursue responding to the Request for Proposal.
Staying up to date on the latest technology, newest software/hardware, and people on the move is easy with IVAACast, the official VA newsletter of IVAA. IVAACast provides relevant and industry-specific articles on education topics and upcoming events such as Live Summit, weekly coffee chats, and peer discussions.
In any profession, the support of a professional networking system is important for social and peer support. As an IVAA member, VAs have the opportunity to:
- Connect with VAs around the world,
- Learn new skills to help grow business,
- Receive discounts on products or services geared specifically toward VAs, and
- Have an instant support system to help navigate the ups and downs of their chosen field.
