Looking Forward in 2011

Laughing all the Way to Work

Happy New Year everyone! The new year is a good time to bring up the Look-Forward Agenda. One of the challenges the recording secretary will have is to make sure they don't miss items that need to be dealt with at each meeting. The Look-Forward Agenda is very helpful for this. It is basically a list of items that are regularly dealt with throughout the year and provides a timetable of when these items need to be added to the agenda.

Interns (& Internships) ROCK!

ProAssisting Blog

I know, I know… ProAssisting is a blog and on-line learning environment for assistants… and it is but before one becomes an assistant, they usually have had some experience working as an intern. Basically, we believe, interns and internships rock and that anyone in college (and even high school) should be interning during summer breaks and potentially during semesters when they have a break in their schedule. But why? What’s the point?
