World-Voices 'Certifying Guild' Launches
Membership Drive - First Aim: SAVOA
October 5, 2012
(VOXtra) - Describing itself as "Voice Over's New Certifying Guild," World-Voices Organization has begun a membership drive and soon will launch a certification program for voice talents with home studios and other areas of voice over, the Executive Board has announced.
Also on tap: a mentoring program and "many other exciting benefits."
Though the membership drive is initially aimed at current and former members of SAVOA (Society of Accredited Voice Over Artists), all voice actors are invited to join. A $25 application fee, which covers the vetting process, is being waved for a limited time for SAVOA members and former members.
Many of World-Voices' board members bailed out of SAVOA last spring in a dispute over leadership and SAVOA's direction.
"Our organization is all about inclusion," writes board member Dave Courvoisier in a recent message.
World-Voices also recently published a series of best practices guides for voice talent, producers and trainers (see VoiceOverXtra articles by clicking above).
