|Description||The Australian Institute of Office Professionals is the only national professional body for office professionals in Australia. The Institute was established in 1963 to “encourage the attainment of a professional qualification and promote and develop the private secretarial profession at all levels”. The Institute is still primarily involved with improving the profile of Office Professionals in the business community and increasing their educational levels.
In 1968 the Institute became the only professional examining body for Secretaries in Australia, and the Institute now has its own registered Diploma of Business [Administration] from Charles Sturt University, NSW. Which is conducted nationally as an external self-paced study program. The Diploma forms the basis of the Institute’s accreditation system for business colleges and educational institutions.
The Australian Institute of Office Professionals is affiliated with similar professional associations for office professionals in the USA, UK, Asia, South Africa and New Zealand.
Professional and personal development meetings are held regularly in each Division and Branch around Australia. A National Convention is held every two years and anyone involved with the secretarial and administrative profession is encouraged to become a member and attend development meetings.
