The Fayette-Coweta Chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) is waiving their chapter membership fee in support of local administrative professionals during these hard economic times. 


During their February monthly meeting, the chapter voted and unanimously agreed to waive the twenty dollar ($20.00) local chapter membership fee for new members through May 31, 2009, although the International and Georgia Division dues still need to be paid.  "During these economic times, the IAAP Fayette-Coweta Chapter understands the needs of administrative professionals.  Whether it is keeping your current job or looking for a new one, networking is another benefit of joining IAAP" said Charlene Riedl, who recently assumed the role of treasurer. "And what a better way to celebrate April 22nd-Administrative Professional's Day than to support fellow professionals," said Sue Renfroe CPS/CAP, charter/former President and current chapter secretary.



Since 1952, the International Association of Administrative Professionals has honored office workers by sponsoring Administrative Professionals Week. Today, it is one of the largest workplace observances outside of employee birthdays and major holidays.


The IAAP Fayette-Coweta Chapter was chartered on April 22, 2005 by the Georgia Power Chapter.  Membership is open to all administrative support personnel in Fayette and Coweta counties as well as surrounding areas.  The chapter's mission statement is our commitment to promoting the challenges and opportunities of the profession.  The chapter also provides continuing educational resources for the enhancement of leadership, management and technological proficiency.  Chapter support and encouragement for attaining the Certified Professional Secretary and the Certified Administrative Professional ratings, as well as other certifications in the area of office support.   Membership Chair, C.J. Bedgood CPS, reports "Our goal is to provide our members and guests the opportunity to make great friends and network with a group of professional and extremely supportive women."  For membership questions, please contact C.J. at
