Students Organize Administrative Professionals Conference
April 17, 2007
Keyano Office Administration students organize second annual Administrative Professionals Conference.
Keyano College Office Administration students are putting their skills to the test by planning and executing the second annual Administrative Professionals Conference on April 24, held at Keyano.
Held during Administrative Professionals Week, the full day conference includes keynote speakers Guy Boutilier, Minister of International, Intergovernmental and Aboriginal Relations; and Kjersti Powell, Senior Human Resources Advisor for Syncrude Canada Ltd.”This event is beneficial to many people in the community, it is the only event dedicated solely to administrative professionals,” says Office Administration Chair Gina Langager. “The Conference is incredibly valuable to our Office Administration students as they have the opportunity to learn, plan, implement and see the end result.”
Local administrative professionals who attend will have the opportunity to celebrate their excellence and develop new skills in a variety of workshops offered throughout the day. Participants can choose three out of 17 sessions to attend, such as conflict management, assertiveness training and financial planning.
The Conference will include a live webcast featuring Marcus Buckingham, author of Now, Discover Your Strengths; and Libby Gill, author of Coach Your Self to Success. A luncheon, silent auction, trade show and door prizes are also part of the day.
“The silent auction at the end of the day has special meaning to the students organizing the Conference; all money raised goes towards an Office Administration Excellence Scholarship,” said Langager. “Current students are able to help future students excel in this program.”
