WELCOME! Thank you for visiting the website of IMA Switzerland.

Our primary aim is to dedust the reputation of Assistants in Switzerland. A professional Assistant is no longer just a "coffee-bringing typist". Today's modern Assistant takes over operational responsibilities in processing, project management and leadership. A successful manager requires a forward thinking, cross-linked and well-educated assistant. We provide opportunities for training, cross-cultural relationships, exchange of ideas and international meetings. We create an image of the Assistant as an essential part of the management team. We form a network of highly competent Assistants. You are certainly warmly welcome to join our IMActivities as a guest. Should you have any questions, remarks or requests, please do not hesitate to contact either the National Committee Members or the appropriate Regional Chair directly. Be an active part of the team - be IMAgnificent!
