Introducing our new association manager

lindaWe are delighted to introduce Linda Bosschers as the new association manager for WYSE Work and Volunteer Abroad and the International Au Pair Association (IAPA).

With a strong background in project management gained across the medical events sector, Linda will be working with our members and other industry stakeholders to drive the associations forward and ensure that we continue to meet the needs of our members – and the industry – going forward. Linda replaces Simona Dallera, who has left to study for an MBA in Paris.

“Our recent Work Experience Travel Market and IAPA Annual Conference (WETM-IAC) last month provided a fantastic opportunity for me to meet with many of our members,” says Linda.

“I am delighted to have joined WYSE Work and Volunteer Abroad and IAPA as the association celebrates its 20th anniversary and I look forward to working with you to support you and the industry as a whole going forward.”

Commenting on Linda’s appointment, John Lawler, Chair of WYSE Work and Volunteer Abroad, says: “We welcome Linda with open arms and I know she is looking forward to engaging with our members and wider communities to build on the great work we are already doing.

“We look forward to a long and happy working relationship with Linda in years to come, and would like to thanks Simona for her hard work and dedication during her time with us.

“On behalf of the IAPA board and all members we are pleased to welcome Linda on board, adds Patricia Brunner, Chair of IAPA. “We are delighted to have found Linda to replace Simona and we trust that she has the right skills professionally as well as personally to support our association and its members in the future.”

Both WYSE Work and Volunteer Abroad and IAPA wish Simona all the best for her studies and her future career.
