CELEBRATING ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS DAY 2023

On April 26th, we celebrated Administrative Professionals’ Day, and treated Barb, Becky and Jan, who consistently keep our offices running smoothly, to cake and cookies to show our appreciation.

HISTORY OF ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONALS DAY

Previously known as Secretaries Day or Admin Day, in the United States, it’s celebrated on the last Wednesday in the month of April. After World War II, there was a scarcity of skilled office administrative and secretarial personnel because of the birth decline during the Depression in the United States.

Post-war business boomed, and in 1942, the National Secretaries Association was created, formed not only to recognize the contributions of administrative personnel, but to help develop interest and attract workers to this field.

In 1952, U.S. Secretary of Commerce, Charles W. Sawyer, officially proclaimed June 1-7 of that year as “National Secretaries Week”. The following year this commemoration¬† became official, designated as National Secretaries’ Day, on June 4th. In 1955. By 2000, the observation was moved to the last full week in April, with Wednesday noted as Administrative Professionals Day, to include the wide range of responsibilities and job titles of administrative staff in our modern economy.

WHAT IS AN ADMINISTRATIVE PROFESSIONAL

Some job titles that fall under this umbrella include Administrative Assistant, Human Resources Administrator, Secretary, Bill and Account Collectors, Receptionists, Office Managers, Administrative Directors and 401(k) Administrators.
