2014 is the International Year of the Secretary and Administrative Assistant (IYOTSA), a celebration of the 30th year of the secretary designed to strengthen the administrative profession and its visibility on a global scale. Members of the Professional Association for Secretaries and Administrative Assistants (PAFSA) are spearheading the celebration, and All Things Admin is fortunate to be one of the U.S. representatives for the event.
The IYOTSA Charter reads:
Every Administrative Professional, EA, Secretary, Management Assistant, Personal Assistant – whatever the title – anywhere in the world will:
a) Have a job description that accurately depicts the role you are doing.
b) Receive investment in your personal development whether this is in terms of money or time to participate.
c) Have the opportunity to network with your peers.
To support this effort, IYOTSA is focusing on a different initiative each month and February’s is creating accurate and complete job descriptions and job titles for admins.
As part of this initiative, All Things Admin is excited to be collaborating with IYOTSA to develop a workbook that will help admins create their job descriptions. We’ll be rolling out the new workbook during this free OfficePal webinar, “Get Your Job Description Right: 5 Simple Steps to Develop a New & Improved Job Description,” on Feb. 26 at 1 p.m. ET, noon CT.
