IMA's Training & Development has the potential to make a strong positive impact on the performance of its members and their careers.

Each year we chose a topic:in 2017 IMA will work around ‘Business Ethics’.Our role as assistants to the management is crucial, as we execute their decisions. But do we always agree? Do we have a choice? Acting in an ethical way is about being able to distinguish “right” from “wrong”. It is about integrity and doing the right thing, even when no one is watching.

From EAPS to IMA

In 1984 Anna D’Angelo Bechi decided to found the Italian group of EAPS, European Association of Professional Secretaries, after her meeting in Lugano, during a Secretary World Congress, with Sonia Vanular, founder and first Executive Chairman of EAPS. The presentation of the Association to the potential members and media took place in Milan in March 1984 and Anna D’Angelo Bechi became our first National Chairman. 33 years have passed from that day, and during the last 33 years we have been evolving as well as our profession.

From Secretaries to Manager Assistants, the aims of the Association were:
* be the recognized voice of the Management Assistant profession in Europe;
* to create an image of the MA as an essential element of the management team;
* to establish a network of highly competent MAs;

After more than 30 years we are still committed to increase members'personal and professional efficency by supporting a tailor made education, encouraging to attending our international meetings that deal with topics related to the current business environment, as well as creating new business opportunities.
