Who we are
We are a membership driven 501(c)(6) non-profit association made up of voice professionals from all voice related vocations including SLPs, ENTs, Professional Singers, Voice Teachers, Voice for the Actor Coaches, music directors, stage directors, and others who work with human and animal vocalization.
The mission of the Pan-American Vocology Association is to advance the scientific study of vocalization across species toward improvement of professional and recreational voice use. PAVA fosters vocology in all countries of the Western Hemisphere through research, dissemination of knowledge, training, and the creation and development of professional standards and credentials in voice habilitation, while promoting the enhancement of established credentials in rehabilitation across countries.
