It is definitely worth going. I went last year, and there are quite a few of us from VAN who will be there this year as well. Fred from IAVOA said that early registration was up 70% this year, so if you want to go, you'd better hop to it :bounce8: . From what I understand, there is a limit as to the # of people the rooms will hold.

 

Hope to see you there,

 

Warmest regards,

 

Terry

Virtual Assistants Get Face-To-Face

 

Virtual assistants from across the globe to converge in Dallas, Texas for an action-packed weekend, October 12-14, 2006.

 

O’Fallon, Illinois, May 8, 2006—VA Conference 2006 hosts Kelly Poelker of Illinois and Fred and Shirley Gandee of Oklahoma have announced Dallas, Texas as the site for its Sixth Annual Virtual Assistant Conference.

 

“When we learned of Dallas' new slogan–Live Large. Think Big–it only confirmed that we had made the right choice to host VA Conference in Dallas and adopted that as our theme for the conference – Live Large. Think Big. Become a Stellar VA,” states Poelker. The slogan is described as "the essence of a city built on big dreams, freshly blazed trails and an attitude that all things are possible." The conference hosts promise to energize attendees to apply the same principles in their business–a business built on big dreams, freshly blazed trails and an attitude that all things are possible!

 

The agenda has been expanded to include a Thursday night networking event, and two full days on Friday and Saturday. The co-hosts are lining up successful virtual assistants from across the country to facilitate workshops and break out sessions for virtual assistants at all levels – new virtual assistants to those ready to take their business to the next level. VA Conference believes in learning from each other by having presenters who walk the talk as virtual assistants each and every day. “Last year I attended my first conference in St. Louis and will never miss another one!” says Diana Ennen, owner of Virtual Word Publishing and co-author of Virtual Assistant – The Series: Become a Highly Successful, Sought After VA. “The expert advice I received and the relationships I established were priceless. I highly recommend every VA attend.”

 

Sponsorship opportunities are available. For more information or to register online, visit the conference website at: http://www.VAConference.com. Early bird registration begins

May 8, 2006.

I live just north of Dallas so I guess I'd better make it!! :-> Instead of 'farthest traveled' maybe I'll get 'closest traveled'.

Wow...maybe that is taking care of three things :yay: Thanks guys!!!!

I was teasing Fred the other day on the phone (Shirley and him organize this wonderful event together with Kelly Poelker). I kept telling him that we were the reason registrations were up 70% because we were inspiring each other to attend here through our posts LOL! It's great to see the attendance up as many wondered what would happen to the conference now that Janet would not be there because of her sudden and untimely death. She was such an instrumental part of past conference successes. She must be overlooking it all and clapping her hands from heaven.
