VASTA is dedicated to promoting leadership for members, to prepare them for a varied and fulfilling career.
VASTA’s Junior Board is open to members of any age who identify as being in the early stages of their voice and speech career and would like to learn how the association runs by serving on the board of directors as a non-voting member for two years. First-year Junior Board Members attend virtual meetings and read the minutes from all in-person meetings. Second-year JBMs attend all in-person and virtual board meetings and become more actively involved in the board’s activities, following areas of interest that they have developed and voicing ideas, opinions, and the views of the VASTA members they represent.
VASTAs mission seeks to represent as many diverse views as possible, to enrich all our approaches to teaching and coaching voice and speech in education, business, and the wider community. The Junior Board is open to applicants globally. We are particularly interested in receiving applications from underrepresented voices and specifically encourage applications from members who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color.
