The Changing Role of the Administrative Assistant
I found a very interesting article today called The Secret Service of Administrative Assistants in the West Viriginia Record. It is an excellent article on the changing role of the administrative assistant. It addresses our name change from secretary to administrative assistant, but in particular our expanding duties and responsibilities as our roles have been re-created into what they are today. It is written by Kathryn E. Brown and she does an excellent job. She gets to the heart of what it is to be an administrative assistant. As we have always known, we have an important role to play in the office and it is nice to see that pointed out in this article.
