Congratulations Anne Ganguzza, newest member of SaVoa!

We are very proud to announce that our coach and producer, Anne Ganguzza, has recently been accepted into the Society of Accredited Voice Over Artists (SaVoa)!

SaVoa is an accreditation program for voice over artists. Now in it’s 6th year, SaVoa is an international Guild of seasoned voice actors that sets standardized criteria for vocal and technical delivery.

SaVoa believes the voiceover business benefits from a set of conforming quality standards that define the voice performance excellence that clients should expect. When such criteria become the standard, it reflects on the voice over community as a whole.

This acceptance into SaVoa means that Anne has exceeded the minimal standards of performance, audio quality, technique, and technical expertise that define the quality of this group.

Anne will have many familiar faces at SaVoa. She is greeted by Such A Voice colleagues: Jesus Blanco, Heather Costa, Lisa Foster, Scott Pollak and Brian Thon!

Anybody can apply to become a member of SaVoa. The accreditation criteria can be found on their website:

SaVoa recommends that you review both the Standards and Accreditation Criteria before applying. Once you become a member (as long as you adhere to the established code of conduct), your membership will last 4 years. The fee for that period is $75. SaVoa is a non-profit organization and uses member fees to modestly promote the Guild.

An active membership in SaVoa entitles a member to freely use the shield logo attesting to accreditation status on a website(s), voice over profile pages published on the internet, business cards, demo CDs, and print ads strictly and solely advertising your voice over services. Members may also provide written notice of their accreditation status in other acceptable content.

SaVoa is constantly growing and bringing greater value to its members. The Guild currently offers discounts from audio software, equipment vendors, educational materials, coaches and workshops. Also, a member can list their commercial demo next to their name on the SaVoa member site. SaVoa also encourages its members to join the exclusive online community of voice-actors that display the SaVoa shield. This group discusses various issues and openly shares advice. Members are also encouraged to submit questions to the group, as well as answer questions posed by other SaVoa members.

SaVoa prides itself on the outstanding list of already active professional voice actors who are “raising the bar” for all VO’s everywhere.

Becoming accredited at SaVoa is definitely something you should aspire to in your voice over career!
