Secretary General’s Message – January 2018


Dear Colleagues,

The year 2018 marks WITSA’s 40th Anniversary. Happy Anniversary to WITSA!

On behalf of WITSA’s Secretariat and Board of Directors, I wish you and yours a very joyous New Year! I would like to begin by thanking you for your personal as well as organizational support of WITSA.

I am pleased to announce that WITSA finished the 2017 year with the best Balance Sheet in its history.

In an effort to enhance WITSA’s communications with our members and stakeholders it is my pleasure to announce the launch of this monthly WITSA newsletter. We sincerely hope that you enjoy it.

Please send us your organization’s announcements, news and other information you wish to be included in the newsletters.

As we look forward to the future, WITSA will continue to improve its global brand as the Voice of the ICT industry. WITSA will continue to produce Global Policy Position papers designed to facilitate the growth of our industry. Our World Congresses continue to be a great source of pride, not only for WITSA but our outstanding country hosts.

As you know, last September CISA hosted WITSA’s 21st WCIT in Taipei, Taiwan with over 100 renowned speakers and over 3, 000 delegates from around the world. Our upcoming WCIT in Hyderabad, India (February 19-21st) promises to be a spectacular event. Please do not miss this opportunity!

You are invited to participate in WITSA’s newest program offering, Association Corner. This program offers association management advice and best practices.

Thanks to WITSA’s Chairman, Yvonne Chiu, WITSA has opened an Asia/Pacific office in Taiwan. This office will support WITSA’s activities in the region; focusing on upcoming WITSA World Congresses.

Once again best wishes and thank you!


Dr. Jim Poisant
Secretary General
