Administrative Professional's Week : April 19-25, 2015 (Admin Professionals Day – April 22)This was formally known as National Professional Secretaries Week and National Secretary's Day.  Harry F. Klemfuss of Young and Rubicam created this in 1952 as he recognized that the position was important and valuable to any business. Klemfuss was a PR expert and his initial goal was to encourage more women to become secretaries.  As a result of promoting the role of secretaries,  he also created the holiday to recognize them. As we well know, the name has changed over time as the role is no longer gender specific.  Today the term we are most familiar with is Administrative Professionals.  While the name has evolved, the importance of recognizing these “Rock Stars” on your team has not changed.Some of the most common ways of recognizing your Administrative Professional(s) today are: Flowers Cards, often with shopping gift certificates Assorted Gift Baskets Read Original Article

Some messages from our group...

What makes the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce a good chamber to be part of?

I’m enjoying all the benefits of my chamber.  The jumpstart breakfasts, mixers and learning opportunities make it a little easier to do business. The chamber has such credibility that being a member makes it a little easier to network.
