HENDERSON, Nev., Feb. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- What do Elvis, barbecues, and the Peabody ducks have in common? They're all part of that southern flavor that is Memphis, and on April 17-20, 2012, virtual assistants (VAs) from across North America will converge on the City of Blues to soak up this local flavor while they learn, share, network and grow at the International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA) annual Live Summit ( conference being held at the historic Peabody Hotel.

The theme for this year's Live Summit is "Rockin' Your Business." Kicking off the Summit will be keynote speaker, C. J. Hayden, author of the bestselling book Get Clients Now, followed by Sandra Martini with a General Session entitled "Increase Your Bottom Line & Credibility with Extreme Client Care." With an expanded list of breakout sessions this year, topics will include everything from marketing, project management and productivity, to the latest trends in technology and social media. These informative sessions will offer participants the chance to learn new strategies and get advice from some of the industry's most respected leaders, such as Donna Toothaker, Diana Ennen and Kristi Pavlik. There's also plenty of social time for networking, bonding, and enjoying a big helping of southern hospitality.

The International Virtual Assistants Association (IVAA) was established in 2001 and is the only industry trade association for virtual assistants and is dedicated to the professional education and development of its members. It is also committed to educating the public on the role and function of the virtual assistant.

The very nature of the virtual assistant industry means many of the industry members are working from their home offices, often without the benefits of the personal relationships found in a traditional office environment. That's why networking with fellow IVAA members is so beneficial. The IVAA organization, the Live Summit, along with the annual Online Summit provides VAs a venue to develop those relationships and understand that they are part of a dynamic professional family.

Are you looking for ways to rock your VA business this year? Registration for the 3-day conference can be made online at The conference is open to all virtual assistants as well as anyone considering the virtual assistant profession. IVAA members will receive a discounted conference rate and all conference attendees will receive a special room rate at the Peabody Hotel if reservations are made by March 16, 2012.
