Since 1952, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals Week. Today, it is one of the largest workplace observances outside of employee birthdays and major holidays.
Modern business is a storm. Modern office professionals bring order. An office professional adeptly jumps from work involving technology, finance, customer services, logistics, contractors, the law, health care, human resources, taxes and government regulations all in one day and without blinking a well-trained eye. They unlock the front door in the morning and are the last to leave at the end of the day. Nothing happens in your business that doesn’t in some way cross their desks.
Every April for 61 years, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has been asking businesses around the world to show gratitude for the people who get the job done in their office. In 2013, Administrative Professionals Week is celebrated April 21-27 and Administrative Professionals Day on April 24.
Why not celebrate with Clear-Penn chapter members at a dinner and presentation at the Elks Club in Clearfield. Dinner will be at 6 p.m. and the price for the evening is $15. Our featured speaker is Ralph Killmeyer of the ADMA. He will be speaking on the newest office products with emphasis on green products. Free samples will be available to all that attend.
There will also be door prizes. Consider sending your administrative assistant to an evening that will benefit them and you in the workplace. For more information or to make a reservation, please call Alice at 814-236-2443 or Peggy at 814-765-9526 before April 15.
