The WA-Summit is open to WA-Alliance Members and Non-Members.

The WA-Summit is not a conference, it’s a working meeting at which the leaders and representatives of Administrative Professional Associations, Networks, Organisations, industry stakeholders and individual administrative professionals come together to discuss the challenges currently facing our profession.

Delegates: Those officially representing the voices of the administrative professionals in their country, supported by your Association/Organization. Delegates have the right to vote, if required.

Delegate Credentialing is open. Once your credentials have been approved, you will be sent a Delegate code with which you can register. You can find the form here.

Participants: Anyone working in the administrative profession who wishes to experience and contribute to the work of the WA-Summit may attend, taking part in the discussions and the face-to-face Summit. You do not need to submit a Delegate Credentialing form, but you are not eligible to vote.


We allow a maximum of five delegates per country, who must be accredited by their Association, Network or Organisation. Delegates bring to the table not their own opinions, but rather the concerns, questions and challenges of the people they represent. The work of the Summit depends on contributions made by the the voices of administrative professionals around the globe.

Please note that you will be asked to upload an email from the Leader of your Association/Network or Organisation with their endorsement of your participation. Once your credentials have been verified by the WA-Alliance, you will be sent a Delegate code and the the link to the registration and payment process. Delegate Credentialing is open.
