In 2005, Anita was invited to serve on the organising Steering Committee for the Online International Virtual Assistants Conference (OIVAC) to assist with the website and registrations and was also involved in establishing International Virtual Assistant’s Day (and who coined the phrase) which is now celebrated annually on the third Friday of May. Anita served on the committee for 4 Conventions.
In 2009/2010, Anita co-organised and co-founded the inaugural Australian Virtual Assistant Conference together with Kathie Thomas from A Clayton’s Secretary along with a wonderful support committee of fellow VAs, which was held on 12 and 13 March that year. The two day event was an amazing success. The subsequent three conferences met with the same success and is now a regular event on the VA yearly calendar. The 2013 Conference was held in Sydney, New South Wales, with the 2014 was held in Brisbane, Queensland. The 2015 conference will be held in Melbourne.
