It’s Administrative Professionals Day

April 25th, Administrative Professionals’ Day.  Do you have one in your office?  Not just another holiday invented by the greeting card companies to sell more stuff and definitely not just for secretaries anymore.

The idea began with Mary Barrett, president of the National Secretaries Association, now called IAAP (International Association of Administrative Professionals), and C. King Woodbridge, president of Dictaphone Corporation. They served on a council addressing a national shortage of skilled office workers. Together with Harry Klemfuss, public relations account executive at Young & Rubicam, they originated the idea for a National Secretaries Week.  Over the years, Administrative Professionals Week has become one of the largest workplace observances. The event is celebrated worldwide through community events, social gatherings, and individual corporate activities recognizing support staff with gifts. In the  U.S., the day is often celebrated by giving one’s assistant gifts such as flowers, candy, gifts, lunch at their favorite restaurant, or my favorite…time off!  I’ve scoured several different calendars, and have not been able to find Radio Announcer Day.  Well, I’m still working on that.  Anyway, if you have the means, do something nice for your professional staff.  They certainly deserve it, don’t you think?
