The World Administrators Alliance, Council invited not only its members, but also all Associations, Networks and industry stakeholders to participate in the 12th World Administrators Summit.

The World Administrators Summit is a working meeting, open to credentialed delegates who come together to actively discuss the issues that are challenging our profession across the globe, bringing to the table the voices of their members.

We are delighted to have hosted 56 delegates who collectively represented over 130.000 administrative professionals from 25 countries. Also welcomed was a record number of 24 Observers, For 2022, we changed the number of credentialled delegates per country from three to five. Many countries made use of this new step and so we were able to bring even more voices to the table.
