Welcome to the Australian Virtual Assistants Association Survey

AVAA (Australian Virtual Assistants Association) is a non-profit organisation dedicated to the education and development of its members as part of the professional Virtual Assistants Industry, and educating the public on the role and function of the Virtual Assistant here in Australia.

Thank you for taking the time to take part in this important survey. We are gathering demographics of the Virtual Assistant Industry to help with government lobbying, grants, funding and awareness.

There are only 29 questions and it should take you approximately 5-10 minutes to complete. It is important that you answer the questions as accurately as you can, your answers will remain completely anonymous. The results will be published in time for our AGM which is to be held on Wednesday 10th August 2016 at 1pm so we would be grateful if you could complete it prior to then. Thank you for your time.
