More content will be coming to the website soon. We’re just happy to have a more usable site now. The response has been positive.
Next month, we’re having our learning conference and “shareholder’s meeting,” WoVOCon II, brought to you by Source Elements and VoiceZam! WoVOCon II is April 17-19, at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas, in Henderson, NV. We hope you will join us. IMPORTANT NOTE: Registration CLOSED on March 25th. Since we have catering to order and we need a firm head-count, there will be no last minute registrations or walk-ups accepted after this date.
The format will be similar to last year. Friday, we’ll have an informal gathering to set expectations for the weekend and talk about WoVO. Saturday, we’ll be learning and discussing our business with special guest presenter Joyce Castellanos. Sunday, we’ll have large and small group sessions about various WoVO topics, how we can improve your industry association and how you can help.
While you’re in town for WoVOCon, if you’d like to have a private lesson with Joyce Castellanos, she’s made herself available for these. Joyce is an Industry Partner with WoVO, so she comes with our stamp of approval (full disclosure: she’s also my promo coach). If you’d like to book a private with Joyce, please e-mail her here: email@example.com If you’re already a student of Joyce, it might be an excellent time to do your demo in person. Just sayin’!
Melissa Moats is another Industry Partner Coach and Professional member of WoVO. She has offered her teaching studios (two booths) to any WoVOCon attendee free-of-charge during the conference. If you need a studio to do an ISDN session, ipDTL, Source-Connect or Source-Connect Now, you can e-mail her here: firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website here:

I was fortunate enough to travel to VO Atlanta to represent WoVO and talk about our mission and benefits with attendees there. It was the first time I’d attended a VO Atlanta event. Ten of the presenters were WoVO Professional members and many other members were there too. The quality and level of education at the event was incredibly impressive. WoVO sponsored Spanish Day on Saturday, which included Spanish speakers from 11 countries in attendance. It was led by our very own Simone Fojgiel.
The following week, Chris Mezzolesta, Peter Bishop and I attended Faff Camp with many of you in San Antonio, Texas. WoVO also sponsored this event. It was great to meet so many members and new members deep in the heart of Texas. Amy Snively sure knows how to do it right!
Talk to you soon,
Dustin Ebaugh - President, World-Voices Organization
