If you are new to AAPNZ you may not be aware of our annual day. This is a day to celebrate our roles and to get recognition from our workplaces by taking the time to indulge a little and share with other administrative professionals.

A number of events are held nationally and within your region. Most of our groups will have a special event that you can be a part of.

Posters – Available for your use
To the right we have two A4 Posters available that you can download and put up around your office or email to others who may be interested in this event. You can view and download each poster (pdf 1.5 MB), open in Acrobat Reader and add in your own event details on the Post It note or within the highlighted circle. Then save and print or email.

The History of APD

This is an internationally recognised day that was started in the United States in 1952 by Professional Secretaries International – now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP), usually in the last week in April.  The event is celebrated by administrative professionals and their management over the week but the actual day of the celebration is focused on encouraging managers and employers giving their office administrators special recognition.
