We provide VAs the information and tools to be the most valued virtual assistants in the industry, such as:

  • Our VA State of the Industry Report
  • Monthly trainings (both mindset and tactical solutions)
  • Resources
  • Networking events
  • As the virtual industry rapidly expands, the Association of Virtual Assistants is committed to bringing together VAs who are unified, diverse, and in every stage of their business journey and providing each member the most trusted resources and information.

    First and foremost, like you, we value freedom and flexibility. Every service, training, and offering we provide is with this in mind. 

    Additionally, the AVA has become the home of many virtual assistants where they can be heard, and share their expertise. Our members are not takers, they are givers. This means whether you are thinking of becoming a VA or have been pioneering the industry for over 10 years, we are the community that values you and have designed memberships designed to meet every VAs specific need. 

    There has never been a better time to join the AVA. The future is full of opportunities and with the current gaps in the market (listen to The No Frills VA Podcast to learn more) there is plenty of room for growth and for our seasoned VAs to thrive.

    Here’s how we provide value to all of our members.

    Become A Virtual Assistant:

    As a member, we assist you in uncovering how to start your VA business and provide all the resources you could need, as well as help you get your first clients a VA with confidence.

    I love the community.

    If you’re just starting out, all over the place, and trying to figure things out this is the best community to be part of. The AVA community gives you feedback, share their experiences, and ways to implement your ideas.

    Currently A VA:

    Are you VA who is still figuring things out, working on your niche, and figuring out who your ideal clients are? You’ll definitely benefit from a like-minded community of VAs who have been just where you are. There is no one-size-fits-all and you can ask questions, get a multitude of responses and perspectives to make the most informed decisions. Not to mention a cheering section for each milestone you cross! 

    Active community and professional development

    Hands down there is no place that has the combination of active community and professional development all in one place.

    Established VA/OBM/Agency Owner:

    As an established VA, you got this! Clients are coming to you. You’re growing your business, your audience, and your brand. Now you’re ready for the next stage. Whether you are looking to scale back and make more, you want to write a book, start coaching, etc. the AVA recognizes that you have unique needs and desires, as well as both the excitement and challenges of leadership. We created an especially unique membership for you that includes a mastermind! 

    AVA is a pillar of strength

    The contribution the AVA has made is providing a warm, encouraging, and supportive community. The AVA is a pillar of strength you can rely on in good times and bad times.

    The mission of the Association of Virtual Assistants is to be the most trusted source of information in the VA industry. We promote a high standard of excellence within our Association, which not only benefits current and future virtual assistants but those we serve - the client.

    It was clear on March 12, 2019 that the AVA hit a positive nerve. We were just five days away from opening up membership and I wrote an article on LinkedIn, titled, Virtual Assistants, You've Got A Brand New Place To Be Heard & Belong

    While the official launch was to take place on Sunday, March 17, future members were trying to get in sooner. Many were bypassing our testing systems. Talk about virtual assistants who know how to get creative and are tech savvy. With so much early interest I told the team we needed to do an early soft launch and on Friday night, March 15 we began welcoming our Founding Members. A dream that took five years to come true, became a reality.

    The Association of Virtual Assistants was created for ALL current and future VAs and they showed up from every part of the world! We have over a dozen countries represented and we are pleased that members are diverse and represent different races, cultures, gender identities, years of experience, and services offered.

    Companies go out of their way to find and hire diverse people and to be inclusive. The best companies naturally attract these individuals because they send a message through their actions and words that everyone is welcome, wanted, and valued. If the AVA has done anything right, and the members are shouting we have, this is it!

    Our members join because they know, no matter their background, where they come from, or how long they’ve been a VA, they are valued. If you want to be valued as a virtual assistant the Association of Virtual Assistants is your like-minded community!
