Administrative Professionals Day/Week was founded 1952 as "National Secretaries Week" by the then National Secretaries Association. The goal of Amdinistrative Professionals Day was to recognize secretaries for their contributions in the workplace. The idea began with Mary Barrett, president of the National Secretaries Association, now called the International Association of Administrative Professionals, and C. King Woodbridge, president of Dictaphone Corporation. Serving on a council addressing a national shortage of skilled office workers, together with Harry Klemfuss, public relations account executive at Young & Rubicam, believed that a National Secretaries Week would attract individuals to careers in the adminstrative field while recognizing "the secretary, upon whose skills, loyalty, and efficiency the functions of business and government offices depend."
Administrative Professionals Week is always held annually during the last full week in April. Administrative Professionals Day is always held on the Wednesday of that week.
