The most trusted source of information
in the Virtual Assistant (VA) industry.
Membership in the Association of Virtual Assistants will re-open soon.
Please sign up below to be notified when we are again accepting applications.
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.
As the virtual industry rapidly expands, the Association of Virtual Assistants is committed to setting the industry standards and promoting excellence through educating, informing, training, providing support, and answering your most asked questions.
Additionally, this is your place to be heard, voice your concerns, and share your expertise in the industry.
The AVA is committed to supporting VAs in every stage of their career. Whether you are thinking of becoming a VA or have been in business for over 10 years, we have the resources and support you need.
Joining the AVA means you are connected to an association of like-minded individuals who, like you, are committed to excellence and giving back to the industry as well.
The Association of Virtual Assistants is not a group. We welcome all industry leaders, thought leaders, and industry experts. Unlike a group where there is one thought, methodology, or ideology the Association of Virtual Assistants recognizes and supports the diversity of approaches to running your VA business.
An Association for ALL Virtual Assistants At Every Stage Of Your Career
Becoming a Virtual Assistant
We help you uncover if being a VA is right for you, 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.
"After watching the video of Melissa, I knew immediately that I had to join. I am very happy that I did! I've always wanted to connect with other VAs who are also passionate about what they do and supportive of other VAs. My experience so far has helped me to become more motivated in achieving my goals. I have also learned new things that I have implemented to grow my VA business. It’s always refreshing to know the perspective of other well-established VAs and you get that from AVA!"
Growing Your VA Business & Income
You’ve got a full book of business and clients. Now what? Thinking about growing your team, adding services, diversifying your income, or adding to your title? We’ve been there too! Know all your options and speak to others in the industry. Also, give back! Your insights are invaluable to those currently making difficult decisions.
"What I love about AVA is that I'm learning so much and there are so many great resources available. This space is helping me grow and it also allows me to share the mistakes I've made in the building process without feeling self-conscious. I'm gaining insight, and perspective which makes me feel hopeful and energized."

Rebranding or Selling Your VA Business
Rebranding can be difficult but it doesn’t have to be. Whether you are now coaching, writing, speaking, or podcasting know how to rebrand yourself and still be true to who you are and the audience you serve. Being a virtual assistant has the same career path and opportunities as other industries and that means you can also build a business to sell later.
"Thank you so much for creating the AVA and for all you do for its members! I have researched and truly believe in associations! Love the collaboration, the camaraderie and your willingness to take member input to improve the association and help them with their businesses! I absolutely love the non-competitive nature of this group of powerful VA's. Let's do this TOGETHER!"
