Championing the work of administrative professionals

Administrative Professionals Day recognizes and celebrates the work of secretaries, administrative assistants and other office professionals for their contributions to the workplace.

"We would like to thank each and one of our dedicated and passionate Executive Assistants who are the backbone to our company," said DXC Technology.

The orgin of Administrative Professionals Day

Apparently, three people led the effort to create Administrative Professionals Day/Week: a Past President of the National Secretaries Association, now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), Mary Barrett; President of Dictaphone Corporation, C. King Woodbridge; and Public Relations Account Executive at Young & Rubicam, Harry F. Klemfuss.

U.S. Secretary of Commerce Charles Sawyer proclaimed the first observance of National Secretaries Week in 1952 - and a National Secretaries Day was also proclaimed. 

The name of the observance was changed to Professional Secretaries Day/Week in 1981 when the National Secretaries Association became Professional Secretaries International (PSI). In 1998, the organization changed its name to the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), and the name of the occasion was changed again in 2000 to Administrative Professionals Day/Week. The name change reflects the changing job titles and expanding responsibilities of today’s administrative workforce.
