Administrative Professionals Day and Administrative Professionals Week are widely observed in many workplaces in the United States and other countries around the world.

About Administrative Professionals Day

During World War II, there was an increased need for skilled administrative personnel, particularly in the United States. The National Secretaries Association (now the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP)) was formed to recognize the contributions of secretaries and other administrative personnel to the economy, to support their personal development and to help attract people to administrative careers in the field.

IAAP now has an international orientation and continues to provide education and training and set standards of excellence recognized by the business community on a global perspective. The organization's vision is "to inspire and equip all administrative professionals to attain excellence".
