Postponed August 2020 to May 2021

In 1992 Professional Secretaries International (now International Association of Administrative Professionals – IAAP) hosted a meeting that brought together the leaders of the various associations throughout the world to participate in an international summit to discuss global issues affecting secretarial staff.  The first two International Secretarial Summits were hosted in the United States in Portland and then New York.  Since then they have been hosted in South Africa, New Zealand, United Kingdom, Australia, Trinidad and Tobago, New Zealand again and in 2015 Papua New Guinea.   Summits have been held approximately every three years since 1992 and at each summit a bid has been put forward for hosting the following summit. In 2015 New Zealand was the only country to put forward a bid. They graciously allowed an approach to be made to the northern hemisphere to seek a bid. EUMA provided a bid for 2018 which was accepted and New Zealand’s bid stands for 2021.
