Administrative Professionals Week
Administrative Professionals Day falls on April 21 this year – the Wednesday of Administrative Professionals Week – which always takes place during the final full week of April.
During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative professionals, so the National Secretaries Association was formed. The group has since changed its name to the International Association of Administrative Professionals.
U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles W. Sawyer initiated the first celebration of administrative professionals in 1952. While these positions are often not given their due praise, any successful business is aware that the administrative staff keep things running like a well-oiled machine, so make sure to let the administrative professionals in your life know they are appreciated today!
