Great News! The AAVBA finally received the documents which enable us to go LIVE! If you’ve been with us from the beginning, you know that it has been a long and sometimes, very frustrating road. The launch date of the American Association of Virtual Bankruptcy Assistants website,, is expected to be before the end of March 2008.

We are all so excited. We have been working tirelessly to get this organization going and know that you will be pleased with the results.

When we go live, take some time to look at the website before you sign up. There will be lots to see and read. Take a tour and see all there is to see. Some areas are not yet populated, but that will come with time.

Important dates are in the Calendar section. We even have a section specifically for the Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney. But most importantly, we’re happy to be able to bring to you an Association that is formed to support you and your endeavors. Our goal is to have 80-90% Virtual Bankruptcy Assistants working by the end of 2008. With your help and doing your part, this can be accomplished.

At the time the website goes live, we will also do an In-Person Recruiting Seminar in Sherman Oaks or Encino. Most likely, this will be on a weeknight. The seminar will introduce the American Association of Virtual Bankruptcy Assistants and the Virtual Bankruptcy Assistant career. We will have sign ups on that night and special giveaways. If you are in the area and would like to attend, be sure and check back here for details.

Once again, thank you all for being there as this organization came together. Thank you for allowing me to vent when things were not going so smoothly. Thank you also to my staff at the AAVBA; you guys rock! I’m only as successful as the people who stand beside me. You’re knowledgeable beyond your years. Thank you for being patient with this ol’ gal.

Thank you, Sharon at GoGetNotary, for your support. I’ve gained so much understanding from you. To think, only three years ago we didn’t even know each other. Allowing AAVBA a voice on GoGetNotary is appreciated and I hope it’s of interest to your members who are looking for other revenue sources.

I look forward to seeing you all on the AAVBA website and at upcoming events.

Wait! More Great News!
One final important item: The AAVBA will be an Exhibitor at the NACBA Conference this year! The National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys is one of the largest groups of Bankruptcy Attorneys in the nation. Our presence at the Conference will introduce you, the VBA to the Consumer Bankruptcy Attorney. Let me rephrase that, our presence will introduce you, the VBA, to LOTS AND LOTS of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys. And believe me, we will build you up! Wish us luck and send that positive energy our way for this to be a success, because our success is your success.

Stay encouraged!
