ITEA Magazine 45 - July 2023
Dear ITEA Community,
Preparing the future is only possible by understanding the roots.
Solving a problem with a permanent solution can only be achieved by finding its root cause.
Defining the formula of a success is only possible by investigating the roots where it stands.
Creating impactful results is only possible by achieving outcomes that improve lives.
While celebrating 25 years of ITEA, we are diving into the deepest roots of ITEA to understand how it was established so that we may continue its success in the future by following the footsteps of predecessors and continuously adapting these steps to new conditions. And it has been a joyful and instructive journey.
In this magazine, you will find an interview with Wilbert Schaap, the Public Authority of the Netherlands for ITEA and one of the initiators of the ITEA Community, and with Ayda Kara Pektas, Public Authority of Türkiye, a relatively new member of the ITEA Public Authorities Committee. This gives a perspective on what the roots are and how things have evolved over time. The common denominators are continuously successful results, enthusiasm and trust.Read more
