International Association of Administrative Professionals was founded in 1942 as the National Secretaries Association to provide a professional network and educational resources for secretarial staff. The association's name was changed in 1998 to the International Association of Administrative Professionals to encompass the large number of varied administrative job titles and recognize the advancing role of administrative support staff in business and government.
Integrity: Demonstrated by honesty, accountability and ethical behavior consistent with an abiding respect for the dignity and value of individuals. Transparency: Demonstrated through listening, understanding and responding to member and stakeholder feedback. Excellence: Demonstrated by quality resources that support growth and development of the individual and the profession. Collaboration: Demonstrated by an inclusive culture that appreciates the value of diverse perspectives, the power of common vision, and equality among peers.
Recognizing that a position of trust imposes ethical obligations upon all administrative professionals to act for benefit of employers, clients and the public, members of the IAAP established and promulgated four standards of professional conduct
1. The administrative professional shall act as a trusted agent in professional relations, implementing responsibilities in the most competent manner and exercising knowledge and skill to promote the interests of the immediate and corporate employer.
2. The administrative professional shall strive to maintain and enhance the dignity, status, competence, and standards of the profession and its practitioners.
3. The administrative professional shall insist that judgments concerning continued employment, compensation, and promotion be based upon professional knowledge, ability, experience, and performance.
4. The administrative professional must consider the promotion and preservation of the safety and welfare of the public to be the paramount duty.
Read the text Code of Ethics for Administrative Professionals and make alist of all unfamiliar words/phrases
1. Who is the immediate employer, and who is the corporate employer? 2. What is the duty of an administrative professional in cases of conflict of interest with the employer? 3. When can the administrative professional reveal confidential matters? When will the administrative professional assume responsibilities?
The administrative professional, when applying for or being listed for employment, shall not make exaggerated, misleading, or false claims concerning training or qualifications. When judging the qualifications of other persons, whether in providing references, assisting with assignments, or evaluating performances, the administrative professional shall strive to provide fair and objective appraisals and shall attempt to avoid any false, malicious, or indiscriminate injury to or criticism of the professional reputation or work of others.
The administrative professional shall strive to improve working conditions and to ensure equal employment opportunities within the profession and throughout the organization by which employed.
An administrative professional’s personal ethical behavior may often exceed the requirements of the Code, which do not demand less than the law, and often exceed those of the law.
Testimony in a court of law regarding confidential matters should be given only under the immediate or corporate employer’s authorization, under legal compulsion, or to protect the public from harm.
When must the administrative professional resign or notify the proper authorioties?

Modal verbs are always used with other verbs whose meaning they modify in some way One modal cannot be followed immediately by another in English
Modals are not inflected, i.e. they do not have –s or –ed forms There are no participles or infinitives for the modals Therefore they are often called defective verbs or anomalous verbs, i.e. Not regular but deviating from the rule

John is capable of typing very fast. I know how to answer this question now. I was never able to understand a word she said. It is possible that what you say is true. I had a habit of hitting the wrong key on the keyboard. I advise you to read this book. It is obligatory for us to write a report. Is it advisable for us to wait? It is not compulsory for us to attend. You are prohibited from smoking here.
