Yes, what many of you have been telling us that you have been waiting for – the MVAs are back! The nomination stage for our Members Voice Awards 2016 are open and they will close at Midnight 9th September 2016. You will be able to cast your votes for your preferred favourites to set them on their way towards winning one of the most coveted PA Awards – all voted for, by you, our members. It really is the time and the place to have your say!
Since 1999 pa-assist.com have been working with our on-line PA community to listen and understand who our Members consider to be the best at what they do. In 2014 we launched our first Member’s Voice Awards that quickly polled more than 7,500 votes in just three weeks. The Awards for 2015 set new records with a longer time-frame and additional categories, as suggested by Members, of ‘Most Popular Books for the PA’, ‘Venue Finding Services’ and ‘Travel Management Companies’.
Amongst your busy Summer schedules, try to grab five minutes to nominate your favourite resources and top profession providers for 2016.
We will be happy to consider adding further new categories for the latter stages in 2016 – that will be down to you, our Members, for your suggestions – please mail those to firstname.lastname@example.org by Midnight 12th August 2016.
What happens next?
Nominations are now open until Midnight, 9th September 2016 – in our normal style, as an initial prompt, we have listed a number of the higher profile participants in each category, but it is all about who our Members wish to recognise. So, to allow for our Members to propose who should be considered for the final voting stage you can still nominate additional entries in each category with up to a maximum of the top ten in each category to be moving on to the Shortlists and our final voting stage. We then announce our MVA finalists and ultimately the ‘Most Popular’ in each category.
Please cast your nomination votes and suggestions from here:

The Shortlists and Finalists …
