WITSA strengthens the industry at large by promoting a fair trade environment. WITSA helps governments, institutions and multilateral organizations to understand future technology trends and to voice the concerns of the tech industry with regards to policies that affect industry interests. These organizations include the following:
The Business Development Committee was formed on December 1, 2020 by the WITSA Board of Directors. The focus of the Committee is to create business development opportunities and identify new streams of revenue. Members of the Committee include the WITSA Chairman, Deputy Chairman, Business Development Committee Chairman, Secretary General, Treasurer, the Regional Vice Chairmen. Those members interested in joining the Business Development Committee should contact the Committee Chairman, Mr. Brian Shen.
The BDC, will work in close coordination with WITSA’s Chairman, Executive Committee and Secretariat and WITSA’s Finance Committee. The BDC is responsible for working on and developing new streams of revenue such as regional events, new memberships, grants and supporting existing WITSA programs, to include educational offerings, WITSA’s Business Excellence Certification program, WITSA’s Global Partnership programs WITSA’s World Congress on IT, and other related activities with the express purpose of sustaining existing sources of WITSA’s revenue and creating new revenue sources in the near and long term in order to ensure WITSA’s financial sustainability. The committee will also be responsible for rolling out new revenue producing programs.
Committee members will serve as examples to other WITSA members by actively engaging in promoting and taking an active role in and supporting all WITSA’s programs, as applicable.
The committee will report its results to the full WITSA Board of Directors during each BOD meeting.
Key Performance Indicator (KPI): Each year, the Committee will determine what the KPI’s will be for the following year.
On June 5, 2013 the WITSA Board of Directors approved the establishment of its newest committee called the Committee on Education, Training and Human Resources. The Board agreed to have Boris Komrakov representing the Republic of Belarus to chair the committee. The rational foe the establishment of this committee relates directly to the fact that it is widely recognized that there is a global shortage of trained tech workers. WITSA members are adversely affected by this shortage as it restricts their ability to expand their business. In addition every other entity to include governments, industry and civil society are also adversely affected. Each day the problem intensifies. As WITSA is the voice of the tech industry and represents over 90% of the global industry, it is only fitting that WITSA establish a committee to address the issues of education, training and human resources.
