IMA - International Management Assistants Germany e.V.
Your global network for management professionals since 1986 in Germany.
The World Administrators Summit (WASummit) is a global meeting of administrative and office professionals and their associations committed to guiding, influencing and positively developing the profession. The WASummit has convened nine times since 1992. It provides the international platform for peer-to-peer discussion regarding relevant topics that potentially impact those working in the administrative profession.
IMA – International Management Assistants supports the WASummit in conducting an important study of position titles and networking for administrative/office professionals across the world; two of this year’s topics for discussion. Position titles are a crucial element that influences how the business world perceives administrative and office professionals. Networking enables us to internationally work together, share knowledge and speak with one voice.
The discussions at the 10th WASummit in Frankfurt Germany where IMA is the host aims to determine common characteristics of administrative/office professionals’ current roles, responsibilities and titles and ultimately provide strategies for enhancement. The purpose of these discussions is to:
• provide information on position title options that is credible and useful
• enable administrative/office professionals to choose titles to suit their own role and industry and confirm how those titles fit within the profession internationally
• better understand your networking practices so we can support these internationally
• provide guidance for administrative/office professionals internationally.
