April President's Message
know it’s early but let me wish all of you a wonderful Administrative
Professionals Day on April 22. Being a member of IAAP already sets you
apart as dedicated, ambitious professionals. Administrative Professionals Day was
created to celebrate amazing, essential, office and administrative
professionals across the globe. All of you do so much every day. If you
don’t hear it anywhere else this year (and I hope you do) thanks for all
you do for your workplace, your profession and for IAAP. There is no
better way to celebrate APW than with education (and a pat on the back
is nice as well). IAAP is giving you a gift of a webinar worth one recertification point. In addition, the staff at Headquarters will host a reception on April 22.
Need ideas to celebrate APW and advance the profession? I have some simple ideas to try:
though IAAP and APW have been around for decades, as most of you are
aware of by now, we are undergoing a lot of change in the association.
We’re doing this so we can remain relevant for another 70-plus years to
those working in office and administrative professions. I’m very excited
about the changes ahead and I urge you to be well informed and stay
Soon LAN applications will be available (May 1) and the 29 Branches will
be established as soon as the divisions dissolve on June 30. Take a few
moments to fully understand how IAAP is transforming as an organization
and how you can be a part of it. View the new IAAP Revitalization Infographic and the All About LANs Infographic.
Take a moment to pat yourself on the back for your hard work each and every day, share IAAP with someone new.
