Dear WSG Members,
As the fourth quarter closes and a new year begins, I am pleased to report WSG’s continued progress and achievements in the organization’s goals and objectives.
We are highly anticipating a new year of many exceptional meetings for WSG, including our first Regional Meeting of the year, WSG 2016 Meeting of the Americas on 25 – 26 February, which will include the unveiling of our recent study on the Generation Now Clients and Professionals. The Asia Pacific and European Regional Meetings will follow on 13 April and 28 – 29 April, respectively, and the 2016 Annual Meeting will be held on 12 – 14 October in Cape Town, South Africa hosted by ENSafrica.
In 2015 WSG updated the practice, industry and association group web pages with a new design and advantageous features, while also seeing an increase in group participation. Eight new practice and industry groups were developed across the European, Latin American, North American and African regions and there are eleven group events scheduled for 2016. Effective collaboration among our members remains a key indicator for WSG members, and these groups provide a highly powerful and efficient platform for that.
WSG continues to focus our efforts on further implementing our Strategic Plan, and we look forward with enthusiasm to delivering on our goals during the upcoming 2016 year.
On behalf of our Executive Committee and the WSG Board of Directors, I wish you all the best for the year ahead, and I encourage all of our members to take advantage of WSG’s many benefits.
World Services Group
