Yesterday was a national office holiday, though I didn't find out until the day was over. I felt sorry that the 57th annual Administrative Professionals Day wasn't on my calendar, until I realized that it's actually a week long celebration! The tradition started in 1952 as National Secretaries Week, though I'm not sure when secretaries started being referred to as administrative professionals. Whenever it was, I'm glad they made the switch.
If you spend your weekdays as an administrative professional, have you been acknowledged yet? I'm not one for guilt-tripping bosses, but if you have the type of relationship with your boss that allows you to be a little fresh, you may just get a free lunch out of it.
