2017 Annual Professional Development Workshop
Thursday, 4 May 2017 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM (MDT)
The Administrative Profession - Past, Present and Future
Throughout history, the administrative profession has always been part of the solution, providing support for businesses and leaders who carried our country through many crises. Now, the administrative profession itself is in crises. But it’s not all bad news. Like never before, administrative professionals have an opportunity to bring solutions to the table instead of simply performing tasks. Now, we might find ourselves seated at the table with managers and leaders inviting our opinions, ideas, and collaboration. As technology evolves, we are encouraged to foster creativity rather than fear. The list of opportunities goes on as well. To make the most of these opportunities, we must come together to share expertise and diversity, forming high-performance teams within our organizations and within our workforce as a whole. We can no longer tolerate competing against and criticizing each other. Instead, it is time to set new and higher standards, and to support and hold one another accountable to meet those standards. It is time to celebrate our important, collective contribution.
Workshop Sessions are:
- The Administrative Story
- Building Support Specialist Teams
- Wise Integration of Behaviour and Technology
- The Future of the Administrative Profession
Note: There are only 200 seats available and the workshop is expected to sell out, so please don't delay your registration.
