Mark your calendars; today marks the 60th anniversary of National Administrative Professionals Day. This day honors the importance and dedication of administrative professionals in all areas of business.
The first recognition of National Administrative Professionals Day actually started in 1952 when the idea of celebrating skilled office workers came about by Mary Barrett, then president of the National Secretaries Association (now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals, or IAAP) and C. King Woodbridge, the president of Dictaphone Corporation. Together with the public relations account executive of Young & Rubicam, Harry Klemfuss, and the idea of National Secretaries Week blossomed.
According to IIAP, “Admins are one of the engines of business, particularly in a complex economy. In a world that demands the accurate and speedy movement of digital information, admins are masters of data. And they do this while maintaining their more traditional role as the gatekeepers for many customers, clients and employees.”
While today may be National Administrative Professionals Day, the entire week of April 22-28th of this month is entirely dedicated to commending our admins and all that they do!
We would like to especially thank our very own Shauna Deeble, who is the Executive Assistant at our corporate office. Shauna is absolutely wonderful! She is highly dedicated to providing the utmost service and is always there to help wherever she is needed with her amazing smile and wonderful sense of humor. We can’t thank her enough for all that she does!
