The Foundation Celebration
The Foundation of IAAP held a lively celebration to acknowledge award recipients, Amazing Ride 2015 winners and participants, and scholarship recipients. The event took place at The Galt House last evening.
The Foundation of IAAP recently awarded 50 scholarships to deserving administrative professionals so that they can attend IAAP Summit 2015 July 25-29 in Louisville, Ky. for the first time. Additionally, 10 scholarships were awarded to returning Summit attendees. The scholarships cover the cost of a premium registration package and represent an investment of more than $55,000 by The Foundation in the future of administrative professionals. This is the fourth year The Foundation has awarded scholarships to attend IAAP’s annual conference. See the full list of 2015 recipients.
