It’s a big year… one that is definitely worth celebrating! It is IAAP’s 75th anniversary, which means IAAP has been paving the way for admins since 1947. The Foundation of IAAP has created a few ways to help celebrate this monumental occasion. The best part is… you can celebrate with us by choosing to invest in the administrative profession.
Here are a couple opportunities to celebrate the anniversary as well as IAAP’s upcoming Administrative Professionals Week:
• If you know about Vista Grande, our active adult community in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, then you probably know about the special patio pavers there that are dedicated to IAAP members, former Foundation leaders, and many others. There are now a limited number of pavers available, but for a limited time you can get your own 75th anniversary paver. The deadline to reserve your paver is Dec. 1, 2017, or until space is filled. You can find the order form and details HERE.
• Additionally, The Foundation is planning to install a special paver section at Vista Grande for IAAP’s past presidents, including those who have passed. We are honored to have the chance to memorialize such amazing leaders within the profession. If you would like to donate directly to this initiative, we would appreciate your support. See the above form for more information.
• In honor of Administrative Professionals Week, we want to celebrate you and your fellow admins. Between now and APW, we will be launching a virtual tribute wall on our website. It is dedicated to admins who have left a legacy and to those who are still leaving theirs. To submit a name to appear on the tribute wall, all you have to do is donate to The Foundation through our website and fill out the tribute information. You can also email a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org at IAAP headquarters to be posted on the tribute wall.
As always, thank you for your support and generosity. This is going to be the best year yet!
