Invitation to Bid on the 2020 TA World Conference

It is with great pleasure that the combined associations of ITAA, EATA, and FTAA invite your association to bid on hosting the 2020 TA World Conference, which is to be held as usual in July-August. A tradition that began with the signing of a joint contract in 2007, the TA World Conference brings together the collaboration and cooperation of three of the worldwide transactional analysis associations. It is an opportunity to showcase your part of the world and to introduce your transactional analysts to a wide variety of keynote speakers, workshops presenters, authors, and key figures in the TA world. TA World Conference provides a wonderful opportunity for transactional analysts from other parts of the world to visit you. To date, there have been four highly successful world conferences: the first in Johannesburg, South Africa, in 2008; the second in Bilbao, Spain, in 2011; the third in San Francisco, USA, in 2014; and the fourth in Berlin, Germany, in 2017. The local associations in each area have been wonderful hosts to visitors from all over the world. The energy, enthusiasm, and willingness of the combined organizations to help raise the profile of TA in your region is a wonderful opportunity. Please contact Vladimir Goussakovski, ITAA Conference Committee Chair at <v.gusakovski@gmail.com> to obtain the form for presenting a bid. We look forward to receiving your expressions of interest!

Diane Salters, ITAA President; Krispijn Plettenberg, EATA President; and Rhae Hooper, FTAA President
