The Admin Awards Advisory Board is a unique leadership opportunity reserved for exceptional, career-minded Administrative Professionals that have a passion for advancing their profession as well as Sponsors, HR Leaders, and other professionals eager to work together to help us achieve our goals. Benefits of serving on an Advisory Board include:
– Extending your circle of influence and building new relationships
– Getting new perspectives and ideas
– Contributing to the development of a particular profession or industry
– Discovering new potential customers, business partnerships, and opportunity for cross-promotion
– Personal satisfaction of helping to steer a company to success
– Prestige and resume building
The function of the Admin Awards Advisory Board is to ensure we create a program that reflects the needs and wants of the local Administrative Professional community while helping us achieve our goals in the areas of awareness, nominations, major prizes, and sponsorships. Advisory board service is typically a one-year term and meetings occur over a ten-month period. While meetings are typically held during lunch or dinner, in 2020 and 2021, all monthly board meetings will be held via Zoom and will not be in-person as we work to put the health and safety of our team members and board members first.
The Advisory Board has become something very special to previous year board members for a variety of reasons. Not only do members report feeling tremendous fulfillment from being a part of something bigger than themselves — that they helped grow into an exciting, thriving program, but the friendships built along the way are incredibly meaningful and cherished.
Advisory Board members have successfully leveraged their appointed positions to help them differentiate themselves from other job candidates and to help establish themselves as leaders in both their profession and organizations. Tenured Admins supporting CEO’s of our country’s top companies have served on the board in addition to Admins representing lesser-known organizations. The one thing all members have in common is a passion and commitment to making great things happen together!
Those interested in applying should be sure you have the bandwidth, heart, and commitment for serving for the entire term which is typically 10-month commitment. Applications are now being accepted for all 2021 Programs:
Boston (Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Vermont, Maine)
Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana)
Washington D.C. (D.C., Maryland & Virginia)
