Message from the President

Hello and welcome to all Illinois Administrative Professionals members!

I am honored to be in my new role as President and hope to continue providing the excellent leadership this organization has seen these last few years. Now that we are “on the other side” of the pandemic, we will have as many IAP Career Connections meetings and Socials in-person to build up networking and social aspects of the organization. I would love to see your beautiful and handsome faces there. As we begin this upcoming year, I would like you to think about how we, as an organization and a member, can get the word out about our fantastic organization. I will start by asking you to share with a coworker, friend, or family member why this organization benefits you and to bring a guest to the next monthly meeting. I am looking forward to a great year!

Hat’s off to Hannah Stites, our past President, for her hard work and dedication during last year’s term. She did a magnificent job leading IAP and uniting us by hosting socials. Please join me in thanking Hannah for her wonderful work.

Please join me in congratulating Teresa Spence, who was selected as our Member of the Year for 2022-2023. She has been an essential part of IAP by serving on the Program and Events and the Special Events committee. Thank you, Teresa, for all you have done for our organization.

Lastly, I would like to introduce this year’s committee chairs. If you are interested in learning more about a committee, please contact the chair using the email address below. Note that we are looking for committee members for the Philanthropy and Nominations & Elections committees. If interested, please send me an email.

Please do not hesitate to reach out ( with any questions, comments, or concerns.

Much Love, Dimitria Johnson
