Administrative Professionals Day and Administrative Professionals Week are widely observed in many workplaces in the United States and other countries around the world. The first National Secretaries Week was organized in 1952.
The National Secretaries Association was formed to recognize the contributions of secretaries and other administrative personnel to the economy, to support their personal development and to help attract people to administrative careers in the field. The association's name was changed to Professional Secretaries International in 1981 and, finally, the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) in 1998.
There is no doubt that our office would not function smoothly without the hard work of our administrative and support staff. Thank you!
