Andy McAnulla Elected to ATP Board

We are delighted to announce that Andy McAnulla, President of the USA based Surpass operations, has been elected to the Board of Directors at Association of Test Publishers (ATP). 

ATP plays a pivotal part in disseminating knowledge and best practice across the industry, so the global Surpass team is thrilled to have Andy as a representative at this prestigious organisation. 

The Surpass team already has a strong reputation for working in the community with the aim of improving the assessment experience for everyone. Andy’s appointment perfectly aligns with this mission.  

On joining the ATP board as a Director, Andy said:

“We have a longstanding commitment to the Association of Test Publishers. Our team has been attending events in the USA and Europe for many years. We have taken an active role in the planning of conferences, as well as presenting alongside members of the Surpass Community. Recently, Kathryn Myers played a pivotal role in the recent ATP webinars discussing the legal implications relating to online proctoring, and how organisations can mitigate the risk of using the technology for live exams. Although now permanently based in the USA, I’m confident I will have a strong voice for the views of Europe.”

As a Director for ATP, Andy will serve a two-year term representing the Europe-ATP Regional Division. Andy serves alongside twelve other Directors representing ATP’s five Practice-Area Divisions and four global regions: Asia, Europe, India and North America. 

Following Andy’s appointment, ATP CEO William G. Harris PhD stated: 

“Andy’s election to the Board of Directors comes at an exciting and challenging time. The assessment industry is experiencing rapid change, and at the same time, the ATP is re-imagining its global role in this emerging new world of assessment.  I look forward to Andy contributing his wealth of expertise and knowledge to the Board’s collective effort to guide ATP through today’s unprecedented global disruption, while leading the Association toward tomorrow’s future of sustainable growth.”
