What We Do
Our association has made great strides in raising the profile of ABRA and its members both in Belgium and internationally. In addition, we actively work to support our members by identifying problems and providing solutions to issues that confront those in the relocation industry.
Past and present initiatives include representing members regarding legal formalities at City Halls, highlighting problems relating to health insurance for expats, promoting better relations between our members and the BIV/IPI, seeking solutions to insurance for relocation companies, and providing professional advice on VAT issues.
How We Do It
As a non-profit organisation, ABRA is funded entirely by membership fees and online advertisements. Meetings are hosted by ABRA Members. Leadership is provided on a voluntary basis by the Board of ABRA, which consists of the President and a minimum of three further Board Members.
The President is responsible for representing ABRA at any third party events and for external relations and press contacts. The Board has formed committees to deal with relocation issues, membership, events and communications matters and has an advisory role.

Board of Advisors
The ABRA Board meets regularly, usually at six-week intervals. In addition to general business, the Board is very active in promoting the association and addressing issues relevant to the relocation industry. Board members donate their time to play a vital role in the association.
Meet the ABRA Board
To be more efficient, the Board has created Committees to carry out different tasks. We have a Relocation Committee, a Membership Committee, an Events Committee and a Communications Committee. All ABRA Members are invited to join one of our committees and support the Board in its endeavours to further the industry.
