Engelman Berger would like to wish our legal assistants, paralegals, and administrative support professionals a Happy Administrative Professionals Day! Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to making EB a great place to work. We could not provide top notch client service without you!
A little history behind this holiday: In 1952, Harry F. Klemfuss, who handled the Dictaphone Corporation account for an advertising agency, thought secretaries deserved more recognition and wanted to encourage more people to consider entering the profession. He teamed with the National Secretaries Association, now the International Association of Administrative Professionals, and worked to persuade the U.S. Secretary of Commerce to proclaim a day in which administrative professionals are honored for the important role they play in the success of companies throughout the United States. Thank you for your leadership, Mr. Klemfuss.
