IAAP was founded in 1942, and the St. Louis chapter was chartered in July 1942. We provide education and leadership opportunities at the local level. Educational programs are offered at our monthly membership meetings September through June, with the exception of December when we hold our annual holiday party and May which is our annual business meeting and open to members only. In addition, we provide one or two leadership development workshops with both professional and personal development subjects.

St. Louis Chapter supports members studying for IAAP certification examinations, and we also support the test site. Professional resources are offered to all our members through our lending library.

Another perk of membership is our job bank where members may register when looking for a position. Employers looking for qualified administrative professionals to fill openings should contact our corresponding secretary with job information at corresponding-secretary@iaap-stl.org.

The IAAP mission is enhancing the success of career-minded administrative professionals by providing opportunities for growth through education, community building, and leadership development.
