Administrative Professionals Day – April 26, 2023


April 24, 2023


Loni Shaw

Do you know that April 26 is Administrative Professionals Day?  That’s Right!  I bet you know a few fabulous Administrative Professionals, whether they work for you, work with you or just some awesome friends and family that have these jobs!  Administrative Professionals Day recognizes and celebrates the work of secretaries, administrative assistants and other office professionals for their contributions to the workplace.

Do you wonder how this holiday came about? We did some research and found according to,

“During World War II, there was a shortage of skilled administrative personnel in the United States due to Depression-era birth-rate decline and booming post-war business.[10] The National Secretaries Association, founded in 1942, was formed to recognize the contributions of administrative personnel to the economy, support their personal development, and to help attract workers to the administrative field.”

While here at Boo-Shaw Bakery, we feel the best way to celebrate your Administrative Professional is by giving them some Boo-Shaw Bakery Cookies, we know that there are many more ways to celebrate this holiday and your entire Administrative Staff!  We found a great article on that offers many ideas to celebrate:
