Administrative Professionals Day

Edison State Community College will present a program on Wednesday, April 26 in recognition of Administrative Professional Day that salutes the many contributions of support staff throughout the area. The Office Systems and Administration Advisory Committee at Edison State sponsors the program. 

The program is open to all office support professionals, including administrative assistants, executive assistants, office managers, and other employees who provide secretarial or administrative support for one or multiple supervisors. Supervisors and managers of those administrative professionals are encouraged to attend with their valued employees.

This year’s corporate sponsors include Emerson; Greenville National Bank; Hobart/ITW Food Group; the City of Piqua; Upper Valley Career Center-Adult Division; and Wilson Health.

The featured speaker at this year’s program will be Stacy Pettit, an accomplished speaker, trainer, and licensed professional counselor in private practice who has been featured regionally and at various state-wide conferences and meetings.  

Pettit’s presentation entitled “Celebrate You!” will encourage attendees to take time to acknowledge their own growth and progress. With her engaging and passionate personality, Pettit will deliver content that the audience can immediately apply when they return to their home and office.

The day’s event schedule this year will include eight breakout sessions addressing a variety of pertinent topics:  “Celebrate You: A Plan of Action,” “Ideas for Coping with Workplace Stress,” “Digital Etiquette-The Do’s and Don’ts,” “Internet Safety,” “Dress for Success–Professional Image,” “Office Professionalism,” and “Skills to Look Like a Professional.”

Those interested in participating will need to register by April 17. Cost to attend is $35 per person, which includes admission to all sessions, a buffet lunch and refreshments, and entry in the drawing for door prizes. The event runs from 11:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will be held at Edison State’s Piqua Campus. Limited reserved parking will be available.
