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.
