There’s plenty goings on in the DC Metro region this time of year — both to celebrate the the holidays and to get social.
For administrative professionals, we invest a ton of time in organizing our company holiday functions. But what’s new for us?
Did you know there is a local admin group– DC LAN – International Association of Administrative Professionals group?
We ran out of room for our first social event at Union Station on the 2nd of December. Our next event is already almost at capacity — January 3 at the Champps in Arlington.
You don’t have to be a group leader to host an event. If your office has conference room space, we can get an educational or informational event to you. Professional development for administrative professionals! that is what IAAP is all about.
We have tentative educational events scheduled for March, April and May. And, we’re looking at offering webinars in early 2016.
Want to learn more about IAAP? Check out their site at http://www.iaap-hq.org.
And, if you are looking for a great network in the DC Metro region, reach out to me. We’ll get you on the mailing list. I’m a volunteer for IAAP, not a paid staff member. My goal is to help DC area admins create and keep a strong and resourceful network of peers.
And on a personal note, here’s wishing each of you a peaceful and joyous holiday season. Hope to meet you soon.
