1+1=3. Strengthening each other, helping, learning from each other and connecting is that makes us the supporters who we are and why we choose this profession. To me, this corporation with IMA is fantastic. Although we are both an association for the support professional, we are operating in different work fields. And, it is precisely by connecting those two worlds that this event becomes so unique and special”, says Jolanda Maasakkers – National Chair, NVDM
