    The longest running award in our profession!

    Administrative Professionals are a key element in any business. But some administrative professionals really do stand out from the crowd – their professionalism, highly skilled approach and can-do attitude put them ahead of the pack.

    Since its inception in 2006, thirteen outstanding Administrative Professionals have been named the Administrative Professional of the Year, and well over 30 finalists have been selected.

    This Award recognises the professionalism and experience of administrative professionals within the business community in private sector organisations, not for profit/charities and government.

    Will you be the fourteenth Administrative Professional Award winner - applications open 22 April 2020.

    Administrative Professionals Day is being celebrated throughout the country on Wednesday 22 April 2020.

    Put the date in your diary now!  Group Events will be loaded as details are confirmed.

    Administrative Professionals Day (AP Day or APD) is celebrated by all groups around the country. Events range from breakfasts to after work cocktail functions and dinners. More often than not these events will include a relevant guest speaker or presentation; the National President’s speech is also delivered. Groups will often giveaway prizes donated by national and local sponsors. Many groups use this special day to present their annual group awards.

    AP Day is always celebrated on the Wednesday of International Administrative Professionals Week (usually the last week of April). In New Zealand, the day occasionally needs to be celebrated a week earlier to avoid the clash with the ANZAC Day public holiday.

    Members and non-members are encouraged to attend their local group’s APD event and bring with them their managers and colleagues.
