Welcome from the President!

On behalf of the IAAP Chapter Board of Directors I would like to welcome you to the IAAP Edmonton Chapter.

As our year comes to a close, and as we plan our AGM, I am reminded of the success we had as a chapter this year with many many changes that were presented to us.  We had an exciting line up of speakers this year and we have implemented a few changes in how our meetings and events are organized.  This year, we hosted our first Administrative Professionals Day evening Gala, we had our exciting Boot Camp in October and we have a great mix of both hard skills and soft skills training opportunities.  We thank you for making this year so exciting and we look forward to continuing to grow with you. 

Consider becoming a Member of Excellence this year or work towards your Certification and take your career to the next level.  We can help. Ask us how!

We are always looking for volunteers planning events, working on our website, producing a chapter newsletter or simply spreading the word and helping us build the Edmonton Chapter.  If you want to get involved, please speak to any of this years board members.

The entire schedule including information regarding the Board of Directors and the various Committees can be found
here.

We hope to see you at our May AGM & Dinner Meeting on Tuesday May 13, 2014. This evening will be an opportunity to meet your incoming Board for 2014-2015 as well as have a say in what the following year might look like.  We look forward to seeing you in our new VENUE: CHATEAU LACOMBE HOTEL.   Register online today!!

We're here to help you get the most from your membership. Let us know how we can help!
