In honor of all the great Administrative Assistants in blog land I would like you to know that you are a wonderful asset to any company. There shouldn't be only one Hallmark/FTD Florist Day set aside to honor you. You deserve to be appreciated every day. Here is some history on this appreciative day:
Administrative Professionals Week ― Always observed annually during the last FULL week in April, standard Sunday through Saturday calendar week - April 23-29, 2006
Administrative Professionals Day ― Observed annually the Wednesday of Administrative Professionals Week - April 26, 2006
Event History and Objectives:
This annual event was originally organized in 1952 as "National Secretaries Week" by the National Secretaries Association (now known as the International Association of Administrative Professionals) in conjunction with public relations executive Harry Klemfuss and a consortium of office product manufacturers. It was established as an effort to recognize secretaries for their contributions in the workplace, and to attract people to secretarial/administrative careers. In the year 2000, IAAP announced a name change for Professional Secretaries Week and Professional Secretaries Day. The names were changed to Administrative Professionals Week and Administrative Professionals Day to keep pace with changing job titles and expanding responsibilities of today’s administrative workforce.
Over the years, Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances. The event is celebrated worldwide, bringing together millions of people for community events, educational seminars, and individual corporate activities recognizing support staff with gifts of appreciation.
Make sure you wish your Admin a very special day. If you are admin, please let today be your day!
I think any assistance, administrative or other, deserves recognition.
