Extending Appreciation on Administrative Professionals Day – April 25

Wednesday, April 25, is Administrative Professionals Day which recognizes and celebrates the work of secretaries, administrative assistants, and other office professionals for their growing and diverse contributions to the workplace.

Administrative Professionals Week was formerly “National Secretaries Week.”  In 2000, the Professional Secretaries International changed its name to the “International Association of Administrative Professionals” to reflect the expanding role of office staff.

MTI represents approximately 200 MMSD Adminstrative Clerks, Secretaries, and other administrative support personnel in our Educational Support Employees Association (ESEA-MTI) bargaining unit.  These individuals provide critical and often unrecognized support to District employees, students, and families in school offices and central administration.

Please take time on April 25 to reach out and extend thanks to the administrative professionals that you interact with who perform this important role and take care of so many of the needs of students and staff in your workplace and across the District.
