EATA Council Delegates

To realize and to work as a voluntary organization, EATA works with Delegates and officers in a Council. They come from all the countries where EATA has affiliated associations. They discuss and decide on EATA’s policy, strategical development, budget, projects and so on. Delegates work in committees that do the operative and strategic work in certain areas, for example communication, research and TA development or professional training standards. They participate in task-forces that work on specific, time-bound projects. And once a year, Council comes together to work for three days, somewhere in Europe.

I have already been a delegate from my country in the EATA Council, it is my second time.

Nicole Lenner ​​

My first contact with TA was in 2002, a love at first sight experience. TA-training for me was a divers journey and a stable compagnion through some life incidents and a rather intense inner developmental process. I did my CTA exam in 2014, followed by TEW at Santiago de Compostela in 2016, now (2021) heading towards TSTA exam.
As EATA delegate for DGTA I am enthusiastic about building bridges between the two associations and contributing to the quality of our exam processes and communication between colleagues throughout Europe and the world. I feel that walking the talk with regard to our ethical principles is more then ever needed in the volatile, often hostile and endangered world we live in.

Mayke_Wagner-Froboese  ​​

My TA journey started in 2001, when I did my 101 and decided to join a TA training group in the organizational field. In my role as consultant / facilitator for team and organizational development processes, TA was and is a helpful base. I passed my CTA in 2008, took part in a TEW in 2010 and passed my TSTA exam in 2016/17. From 2014 to 2018 I organised the EATA exams in Rösrath as Local Exam Supervisor. I enjoyed creating and maintaining a framework for stimulating examination processes – both for the candidates and the examiners. Therefore, I joined COC after I was elected as EATA delegate for Germany – contributing my LES experience and my enthusiasm for high-quality exams.
