11th Annual Administrative Professionals Week Recognition Breakfast & Vendor Expo
Thursday, April 26, 2012 from 7:30 AM to 10:30 AM (CDT)
The Woodlands, TX
Administrative Professionals Day will mark its 60th anniversary on April 25, 2012.
Over those decades, the job of an administrative professional has changed dramatically thanks to new tools, techniques and seismic shifts in the economy and culture itself. But admins have remained the steady center of efficiency through it all, helping ensure that jobs get done right, on time and under budget. Admins are one of the engines of business, particularly in a complex economy. In a world that demands the accurate and speedy movement of digital information, admins are masters of data. And they do this while maintaining their more traditional role as the gatekeepers for many customers, clients and employees.
Quite simply, admins are the pulse of the office.

TOPIC: Wind of Change in the Air
If there’s a single skill that separates the successful people from the great horde of also-rans, it’s the mastery of change — especially a change that affects our jobs, most of us react with something closer to abject fear, dread and defensiveness.
The fact is that change lies at the very heart of a successful life. It is the engine that fuels our whole life. It is what keeps us alive. It is what created our jobs. Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced. Becoming a master of change may be something best learned the same way they eat elephant in Africa: one bite at a time.
