The MAEOP Board of Directors needs more members to step up and volunteer for the organization. In particular, MAEOP needs a President-Elect for 2019.
“I believe in this association so much, and want to see it thrive for years to come, that for every MAEOP member who throws their hat into the ring to be included on the ballot, I will personally put their name in a hat and draw one for a free year membership to the National Association of Educational Office Professionals (NAEOP).,” said Lori Schumann, CEOE, MAEOP 2018 President-Elect. View President-Elect Job Description.
MAEOP offers a wide variety of ways to be recognized for accomplishments and to contribute talents to the association. Members who volunteer on a committee and/or for a board position network with other members from across the state and can gain so much value from MAEOP.
Unfortunately MAEOP Board has had a difficult time filling the seats for its elected positions the past few years. To keep MAEOP viable and growing, members need to take on these positions. New board members offer fresh and new ideas,
develop leadership skills, and grow in confidence, while gaining a whole new network of friends.
As educational office professionals, members show leadership skills daily. Serving on the MAEOP Board is a great opportunity to enhance these skills and show co-workers and administrators that one can handle more responsibility, if wanting to advance with a current employer.
If you are ready for this next step, or can help serve in any capacity, please send your name and bio to Lori. Contact her at (763) 506.5960 or [email protected]

An annual membership in the Minnesota Association of Educational Office Professionals is the perfect gift for administrators looking to say thanks to their administrative professionals. It’s a great gift any time of year but is especially fitting for Administrative Professionals Day, celebrated this year on April 25, 2018.
Administrative Professionals Day highlights the important role of administrative professionals in all sectors of the modern economy worldwide. It is on the Wednesday of Administrative Professionals Week, which is the last full week of April.
The first National Secretaries Week was organized in 1952 in conjunction with the United States Department of Commerce and various office supply and equipment manufacturers. The Wednesday of that week became known as National Secretaries Day. As the organization gained international recognition, the events became known as Professional Secretaries Week and Professional Secretaries Day.
In 2000, the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) announced that names of the week and the day were changed to Administrative Professionals Week and Administrative Professionals Day to reflect the changing nature of the tasks, qualifications and responsibilities of the modern administrative professional.
