I would like to thank you for being part of Illinois Administrative Professionals organization. This organization has been on campus for over 70 years and it has seen many changes over the years and this year is no different.
The focus in Illinois Administrative Professionals will be on professional development and a sense of community. We need to make sure everyone in IAP is at their best for the university to be its best. To highlight some of the activities the various IAP committees have done to support professional development and community:
Programs and Events organized informative meetings to help us personally as well as professionally with guest speakers such as Morris Mosley from Faculty and Staff Assistance Services.
Philanthropy has conducted plant sales to raise funds to support organizations on campus and off campus whether is it Adopt-A-Family at Christmas or Filling Backpacks for the Daily Bread Soup Kitchen.
Our new Fundraising committee has done an excellent job the last two years to organize volunteering opportunities at State Farm Center in raising funds for professional development.
I hope you will do your part in supporting IAP this year! Thank you in advance.
