The International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA) is delighted to announce its national and regional sponsors for the 4th Annual IVAA Summit, Oct. 19-22, 2005, at the Hyatt Regency in Houston, Texas.
This year's Summit offers virtual assistants an opportunity to come together and learn from each other and recognized business leaders, such as keynoter Michael Fortino of The Fortino Group, ranked in the top 2 percent of all keynote speakers and trainers in the country.
Virtual Assistants (or VAs) are professionals who work remotely to provide administrative, creative, technical and/or consulting services to various businesses and professional service industries. Established in 1998, IVAA is dedicated to the education and development of members of the virtual assistance profession, and to educating the public on the role and function of the Virtual Assistant. The IVAA provides three Certification programs for VAs, the CVA (Certified Virtual Assistant); EthicsChecked™; and CRESS (Certified Real Estate Support Specialist).
ÂIVAA applauds our sponsors for their commitment to the virtual assistant industry,Â says Sue Kramer of Peace of Mind Virtual Assistance and Summit Committee member.
