New Year surprise - National Voice Talent Membership is now FREE!

January 27th 2022

We are delighted to announce that we are now able to provide Membership of The National Voice Talent Foundation FREE OF CHARGE, with immediate effect.

The challenges presented by COVID forced us to instigate a nominal charge for members, to help with the reduced revenues caused by the pandemic. This has enabled the Foundation to keep up to date with its various running costs such as domain names registration and web-site hosting, membership management software, etc.

We extend our warm appreciation to all those who supported The National Voice Talent Foundation with generous donations and to all who became paid members, as well as to all who have participated in the workshops and other events organized by the Foundation.

You will continue to be reminded annually to renew your membership, albeit at no charge, and please don't forget to update your details.

We look forward to seeing you all at future events and to providing YOU, the performer, with our continuing high standards of educational support and opportunities.
