Why Join GAVA?
Joining a Virtual Assistant association helps you become part of our community - and get resources that will help you with your business.
Here are some of the benefits you will get by joining GAVA:
A Private Facebook Group For Connecting With Your Fellow VAs
Sure there are many VA organizations you can join, and even though GAVA is the only one you really need to belong to, we won’t discourage you from joining any of the others out there. But, sometimes we can’t find the help and support we need anywhere else.
When you have questions about working with a client, whether you should go with Aweber or MailChimp for your mailing list and autoresponders, or want to chat about the latest technology to make our work easier, the best place to go is to your fellow VAs via our Facebook Group.
- This is where alliances and referral networks are built.
- This is where you combat those feelings of work-from-home-isolation.
- This is your water cooler.
- This is your lifeline!
A Listing For Your Company In GAVA's Member Directory
When someone in need of a VA comes to GAVA website, the first thing they do is browse our member directory. Businesses are searchable by location and by skills, so you can be found by the clients that need you!

How much will all this cost you?
Everything you just finished reading about – the whole kit ‘n caboodle – is going to set you back $97 CAD per year.
Yes you saw that right. $97 CAD per year! Not per month, or bi-weekly. GAVA membership is yours for $97 per year.
This is one of the most cost effective ways you can possibly market your VA business. For that $97, your business is listed in our directory, you will be networking with VAs all over the globe and timely notification of new RFPs are provided on the GAVA Facebook page. You really can’t go wrong with this tiny monetary investment.
Are you ready to join us?
We would love to have you as GAVA’s newest member.
All you have to do to gain access to all member-only areas of GAVA is Join Us.
As a Virtual Assistant, this will potentially be the best and most important $97 investment you’ll ever make. (That works out to just over $8 a month!).
