2020 11th WA-Summit – Invitation

11th World Administrators Summit
30 Aug – 1 Sept 2020
Wellington, New Zealand 


The World Administrators Summit (WA-Summit) Advisory Council invites you and your Association to participate in the 11th WA-Summit to be held on 30 Aug – 1 Sept 2020 in New Zealand. Ensure your country participates in this amazing gathering of leaders of international administrative/office professionals.

Each country may send up to three official Delegates. Funding to attend is the responsibility of each country, association and/or delegate. Where a country has more than three potential Delegates, perhaps due to more than one association within that country, they should agree on representation together. If potential Delegates within a country cannot agree then the Advisory Council will decide, based primarily on the numbers of Administrative/Office Professionals each Delegate represents.

To assist us to better understand likely numbers, our Expression of Interest to Participate survey is now available to all Associations and former Delegates. We ask all potential country delegates to complete this by 18 December 2019.

In some circumstances, an individual may apply to be a Delegate, for example if a country does not have a professional association. However, the terms around those circumstances must be adhered to and are set out in the Delegate Credentialing form on this website.

The formal Delegate Credentialing forms must be fully completed, include a photograph and be signed, are due by 20 March 2020.  After applications have been received, any final decisions required on Delegates will be made by the Advisory Council.

At the WA-Summit, Delegates will work in facilitated groups, to openly discuss and reach outcomes on Agenda topics gathered from administrative professionals internationally. Administra, the World Action Plan, will also be reviewed by the Delegates to determine whether it is still fit for purpose.

There will be networking opportunities for all Delegates with a Gala Dinner held on the final evening. We welcome all official Delegates from around the world and hope you will have time to enjoy exploring Wellington, its environs and wider New Zealand.

Registration forms for the WA-Summit will be available in March/April 2020, so keep an eye on this website and social media. Each Association and all who have completed an Expression of Interest form, will be contacted when Delegate Credentialing is required and as soon as the registration form is available.

We so look forward to welcoming you in person on 30 Aug – 1 Sept 2020, in Wellington, New Zealand.
