Administrative Professionals Day, celebrated this year on Wednesday, April 27, has its origins in world history. In the midst of World War II, capable administrative staff were in high demand to handle everything at home. To acknowledge the hard work of those in the field, as well as to encourage others to do the same – the National Secretaries Association was created. The Association made sure that hardworking support personnel, who contributed so much to the economy, got the recognition they deserved.
Over the years, the association has changed its name several times to reflect a changing society, work environment and diversity of the organizations members. Now known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals, the goal is to focus on international membership, continuing education and maintain a standard of quality. The stated vision of the IAAP is “to inspire and equip all administrative professionals to attain excellence”.
