Administrative Professionals Week

Administrative Professionals Week

Last full week of April
Professional Secretaries Week was started in 1952 by Professional Secretaries International—now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP)—an organization devoted to the education and professional development of secretaries, executive assistants, information specialists, and office managers. It takes place during the last full week in April, with Administrative Professionals Day observed on Wednesday. Many IAAP chapters sponsor special events throughout the week—such as educational seminars or luncheons with guest speakers for secretaries and their bosses—but Wednesday is the day when managers and executives are supposed to give their office support staff a special token of their appreciation.
How do secretaries want to be recognized on this day? According to the 2001 IAAP survey, most of them want company-wide special events or training and educational sessions. What do they get? Lunch is the most common form of recognition, followed by flowers or other gifts.
