We are IMA - International Management Assistants
IMA offers a global and high-quality network of management support professionals.
We focus on the personal and professional development and growth of our members and the continued development of the management support profession.
In 2024, we celebrate 50 years of networking with IMA
Since 1974, we have provided our members across the world with networking and professional and/or personal training.
Throughout this year, we will take you on a journey from where it all started - as Sonia Vanular's vision of a European network called EAPS over the EUMA years until today, where we are IMA - International Management Assistants.
We will do interviews with former Executive Chairs and with members who have stayed with IMA for decades - and with newly applied members.
The culmination to this year of celebration is our International Annual Conference in Stockholm, Sweden this October. There we celebrate in style! Join us on the journey -and join us in Stockholm!
