Welcome to my web site.
JVA is a firm that specializes in Interpretive Master Planning and Interpretive Training courses and workshops. We are one of the few firms offering interpretive consultant services that is staffed by "professionally trained" interpreters. We bring a strong academic interpretive background mixed with lots of field experience with 30 years of "doing" interpretive master planning and staff interpretive training as well as teaching university courses in interpretation.
We are a strong advocate of evaluation (pre and post testing) of draft interpretive media and exhibit design and content. We are an "outcome and objective based" consulting firm that plans for results from the interpretive programs, services and media we plan and design - for every $1.00 you spend on interpretation you should expect a minimum of $2.00 in benefits or outcomes or more. Our product is YOUR success.

InterpNEWS New Subscriptions Update
New reveals with every issue and every story.
InterpNEWS Jan/Feb 2023 - the Buffalo Soldiers, InterpNEWS Mar/April 2023 Cowgirls and Women who Ruled the Wild West.
InterpNEWS started about 12 years ago as a John Veverka & Associates newsletter-with a few interpretation articles added. That first mailing went to about 100 agencies, organizations and individuals. Now, 12 years later, InterpNEWS has evolved into the most widely read interpretation journal/magazine - that was sent FREE to anyone or agency/organizations that wanted to receive it. You can post it on your web site or forward it on to your members for agencies and organizaitons.
New InterpNEWS Subscription Policy for 2023. With rising costs for research subscriptions, website costs, new computer publishing programs, and more time to prepare each issue, I simply need some help to cover the increasing overhead, and time producing and sending out each issue.
I felt that a very low $20.00 subscription fee per year would help me to continue to publish 6 annual issues of InterpNEWS and add my special issues too, as illustrated bellow for 2023.
InterpNEWS is sent out as a PDF document via your e-mail address.
NOTE: Be sure your e-mail in box can accept large PDF files, usually more than 5 MB but can be up to 16 MB. Many govt. and agency mail boxes won't accept it. If that happens use your own gmail, hotmail, etc. e-mail account to be safe.
I am always looking for articles on any interpretive topics. Guidelines: up to 4 pages, single spaced, 12 point times/roman, with the pics as jpegs. Send as a WORD document. Contact me if you have any ideas for an article you would like to submit.
