Edison presents Administrative Professional Day

Administrative Professional Day keynote speaker, Elle Zimmerman.
Edison Community College will present its annual Administrative Professional Day program on April 22 to salute the many contributions of support staff throughout the area. Sponsored by Edison’s Office Systems and Administration Advisory Committee, the event will be held at the Piqua campus from 11:45 a.m. to 4 p.m.

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 will be the 23rd year that we have held an event for administrative professionals at Edison,” said Shirley Moore, Dean of Business, Information Technology and Engineering at Edison. “We design this event as a celebration of the contributions and value that all administrative professionals bring to all work environments.”

Edison partners with corporate sponsors whose financial support makes this day possible. This year’s corporate sponsors include the City of Piqua; Emerson Climate Technologies; Greenville National Bank; Hobart/ITW Food Group; Upper Valley Women’s Center; Upper Valley Career Center; and Wilson Memorial Hospital.

The featured speaker at this year’s program will be Elle Zimmerman, a speaker, coach, and actor with 20 years of professional stage experience. Ms. Zimmerman is associated with the Curtis Zimmerman Group of Mason, Ohio.

Zimmerman’s presentation entitled “The Path to Leadership” will provide attendees with proven methods and acting techniques to become empowered with leadership skills, be positive change agents, handle their progression expectations, accept failure as part of the process, and be the standard of excellence in their organization.

“Administrative professionals are the heart of any office,” said Gloria A Harpest, Administrative Vice President of Human Resources and Marketing of Greenville National Bank and Chairperson for the Office Systems and Administration Advisory Committee at Edison Community College. “Smooth operation in today’s office is contingent on administrative professionals who are organized in every aspect of their work life.”

The day’s event schedule this year will include seven breakout sessions addressing a variety of pertinent topics such as “Take Center Stage with your Leadership Skills,” Electronic Employment Portfolios,” “Health Rhythms,” “Create Your Own Virtual Assistant Online Business from your Home,” “MS Word Tips and Tricks,” “Crazy Life . . . I’ve got an app for that!” and “Skills to Look Like a Professional.”

Those interested in participating will need to register by April 9. Cost to attend is $35 per person, which includes admissions to all sessions, a buffet lunch and refreshments, and entry in the drawing for door prizes. Limited reserved parking will be available.
