Join Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals

VAAP Member Certificate

Are you ready to join the Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals (VAAP)?

 YES, I’m choosing one of the payment options below to join and give me INSTANT ACCESS to all the information provided to members of the Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals.

  I understand that VAAP is an all virtual association and so I will receive electronic publications and resources. Some of that educational information is in downloadable file links. Some of that educational information is not downloadable but rather it’s accessible online to VAAP members only.

You will tell me where to access all of the VAAP educational resources included in my membership by providing me with a document in my shopping cart at checkout that contains the locations (URLs) and username/password to access them.

 Once I’m a paid current individual member (at the individual rate), I have the right to let others know—including current and prospective employers—that I am a member of VAAP, proactively pursuing continuous learning, best practices, news and trends for and about my administrative professional role. If my company becomes a member (at the company rate), I still can note on my resume and in my professional documents that I continuously learn through VAAP participation and resources.

Okay, okay…I’ve heard enough, and I’m ready to invest in me! I’m ready now to choose one of the risk-free options below to become a member of the Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals so I can keep adding to my knowledge base as an administrative professional (and tell everyone that I’m a member of VAAP):

Choose just one of the options below:

1. MOST POPULAR OPTION: Individual (as in “just you”) is a 12-month VAAP membership subscription for $165. Click Here to Buy Now.  This includes access to the VAAP private member Web site, a current subscription to The Effective Admin newsletter (PDF format), and a VAAP membership certificate in your name (PDF format).

2. “I WANT TO SHARE IT” OPTION: Company (as in “you’re free to share and distribute these resources to everyone and anyone in your company”) is a 12-month VAAP membership subscription for $497. Click Here to Buy Now.  This includes access to the VAAP private member Web site and a current subscription to The Effective Admin newsletter (PDF format). But you will not get a VAAP membership certificate because the certificates are only for individuals, not companies. With a company membership you have my permission (license) to distribute the VAAP resources to every employee in your company (or just the administrative professionals in your company if you want). This is the membership you need to buy when you need to ask me “How can I share these VAAP resources with my coworkers or all the other admins in my company?”


Renewal Orders:

—All renewal rates are the same options as those above. Come back to this page to renew using those same options after your membership expires if you wish to continue your membership.

Make sure the street address and zip code you enter on the payment form in the shopping cart exactly matches the one you or your employer have on file with the issuer of the credit card you use.


The payment page with your transaction is secure and encrypted using advanced shopping cart Web/security technology.


You will get an electronic receipt and download instructions in your e-mail within minutes after payment. Download the membership document from your shopping cart within 24 hours, or preferably right away. It only takes seconds to download it or print the document, and it will only be available as a live download link in your shopping cart for 24 hours.


It’s also best to place your order using your personal e-mail address instead of your employer’s e-mail address. This is so that your VAAP e-mail notifications do not get blocked from reaching your desktop by your company’s e-mail administrator/server filters. This does not always happen but sometimes it does. Contact Karen Porter at if you believe you’re not getting your VAAP e-mail for this reason.

You can’t lose with your membership in VAAP. Your satisfaction is 100% guaranteed. There is a 60-day money-back guarantee always on all my products. —Karen Porter, founder and president of Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals and The Effective Admin
