Administrative Professionals Day

Administrative Professionals Day is April 23rd, and is the perfect day to recognize the administrative professionals in your workplace. Administrative Professionals Day falls on the Wednesday of Administrative Professionals week, which is from April 20th to 26th.

Administrative Professionals Day is observed in many businesses throughout the United States and around the world. It is an observance, but not a public holiday in the United States.  Some employers show their appreciation for their administrative professionals by arranging events to highlight there their importance in the workplace and to help enhance their work related skills.

The National Secretaries Association was formed during World War II to recognize the contributions of secretaries to the economy, support their personal development, and help draw people into the rapidly growing position. The association’s name was changed to Professionals Secretaries International in 1981, and then finally to the International Administrative Professionals in 1988.

The changes in the names were done to reflect the changing tasks, qualifications and responsibilities of the members. The International Administrative Professionals organization now has an international voice, and provides education and training to set standards of excellence that are recognized around the world.

National Secretaries Week was started in 1952 in combination with the United States Department of Commerce and numerous office supply and equipment manufacturers. The Wednesday of that week was recognized as National Secretaries Day. The names of the holidays were changed to Administrative Professionals Week and Administrative Professionals Day in 2000 to keep up with the changing job titles and responsibilities of the modern administrative workforce.
