April President's Message

Dear Cutting Edge members,

Welcome to April! This month marks the 62nd year that the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals Week. As a virtual chapter we won't be holding any specific events to mark this day, but rather we want you to know that you are valued every day. We know how hard you work every day and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your commitment to work hard and continue expanding your knowledge base. You rock!

This month our program will be presented by Julie Perrine, founder of Julie Perrine International, All Things Admin. She is an administrative expert, trainer, motivational speaker, and author. The program is entitled "Developing a Career Calling Card: Your Professional Portfolio". Topics covered in this program include how a professional portfolio can help you PROVE the skills you have listed on your resume, produce work samples on demand to illustrate your career experience and to articulate verbally and visually what makes you stand out from the crowd and why you deserve the promotion or raise. Julie's web site is

As our year begins to move past spring into summer, please consider the role that you play in the Cutting Edge Chapter. Our officers will be moving on from their current positions and we will have some opportunities for you to expand on your role. Look for more information on officer nominations soon. YOU have knowledge and experience that can help guide our chapter in the future. Let's work together!

Again, I would like to remind you that the Cutting Edge chapter is seeking corporate sponsorships to help us continue to provide the most up to date and relevant learning opportunities for you as a member. If you could make just one suggestion to the Board it will benefit us all!

Thank you for all the hard work you do! Enjoy your Administrative Professional's Day!

Andie Mewbourn, CAP-OM
