CalendarThey are the meeting organizers, party planners, event coordinators, problem solvers, and back-bones of the office. Without them, nothing gets done. It takes more than basic clerical and office management skills to become a top-notch assistant. It takes patience, social skills and the ability to multi-task.

Whether called a secretary, office manager, admin or executive assistant, the role requires strong project management, communication and organization skills. Interestingly, the origin of the word “secretary” derives from the Latin word secretum, which means secret. A secretary is therefore “a keeper of secrets” — someone who is in charge of the records, correspondence and related affairs of an organization.

This Valentine’s Day, we honor and celebrate the admins and assistants in our lives with an Admin Appreciation Day, hosted by Appelblom Jewelry and presented by Events by Collette.

Join us for complimentary wine, chocolates, hor d’oeuvres and goodie bags along with special discounts from Appelblom Jewelry. The event will be held on Thursday, February 7 from 6:30pm to 9:00pm. RSVP’s are limited to the first 50 guests. Reserve your spot today!
