HISTORY

The German group was established by 5 executive secretaries in Hamburg on 7 June 1986, and we are proud that 4 of them still belong to our association. The original aims were to improve the secretary's professional status, encourage self development and to ensure that recognition was given to those whose jobs require both intelligence and considerable social qualities.

In May 2016, the German group celebrated its 30th anniversary at the Dorint Hotel located in Neuss, Düsseldorf area. This event showcased the excellent international network established so far: Please refer to a detailed review here.


ORGANISATION

EUMA Germany consists of a National Committee and 7 regional groups, who meet regularly. Depending on demand, the members themselves decide which subjects, speakers, company visits, trainings or cultural trips are chosen. Therefore, there is a large variety of events offered in the different regions.



AGM & AUTUMN TRAINING

The AGM is an all members meeting to decide on the future of EUMA Germany (e.g. election of national committee, budget, strategies, etc.). It is scheduled for a weekend in spring. On this occasion, we either invite a special guest speaker or we combine the AGM with a Training Day.

In autumn, we arrange a major training event mostly in English which is open to non-members, too. Topics of this tailor-made event refer to the latest management require-ments, which should enhance our skills or lead to a higher degree in a variety of experiences and which are normally not offered by public training institutes. Apart from our professional lives as European citizens within a European association we also intend to broaden our cultural horizon by visiting places of interest such as museums, exhibitions, theatre performances, fairs, etc.
