Information in the VA community

As a new virtual assistant you need to get as much information about your industry as you can and one of the ways is, to join the chat forums for the many VA associations/groups we have worldwide. The forums are full of questions and answers, sharing of information etc, they are a place you can go to if you are feeling happy, sad, need a chat, want to vent, tell someone your good news etc.
Join our group forum at Yahoo: Tavasa (The Transcriptionists and Virtual Assistants of South Africa) http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/tavasa/
Another source of information is to sign up for VA newsletters, many VAs produce weekly and monthly newsletters which are full of vital information.
Another way is to follow VA blogs. Sign up as a follower.

And yet another way is to attend the online conventions which are held yearly around the world.
A great convention to attend is the OIVAC http://www.oivac.com/. 2011 is the 6th year for the OIVAC convention which is to be held 19 - 21 May 2011.
You learn many things you do not know and you meet many new friends by attending the convention. The OIVAC convention is held online, so no matter where you are in the world you can attend.
