General Assembly & Workshop 2023

Our yearly General Assembly & Workshop took place on 2/3 June 2023 in Astana, Kazkhstan, kindly hosted by our member agency IAAR.

The workshop titled “People and Culture in QA Agencies” dealt with various topics related to HR management and staff development, ranging from general questions on the strategic level to specific good practices on how to support staff and create a productive and welcoming working environment.

During the General Assembly, our members elected Simona Lache (ARACIS, Romania) and Benjamin Muhamedbegović (HEA, Bosnia and Herzegovina) for a second, Ulkar Sattarova (TKTA, Azerbaijan) and Diane Freiberger (FIBAA, Germany) for their first term on the board.
