Administrative history

The Calgary branch of the Association of Administrative Assistants or Private Secretaries was organized formally in 1965 after three years of operation. The primary purpose of the group was to promote networking and professional development for women in business through lectures, seminars and discussion groups. In 1977 the name was changed to the Association of Administrative Assistants. The Calgary Branch folded in May 1998 but some Calgarians remained "at-large" members of the Alberta region.
