WHY JOIN JAAP
There are many associations in Jamaica, yet many of us do not belong to any because we feel that we are not “professional” enough to join or we can “get” nothing from joining. You are wrong! You should join as there are many advantages to being a part of an association.
Associations are formed for various reasons such as providing ongoing education and up-to-date information about a particular field, advancement in a field, providing networking opportunities with other persons who share the same interests and offering community service. These are advantages you cannot get by just networking within your company.
The Jamaica Association of Administrative Professionals (JAAP), the association for administrative professionals, offers these opportunities and much more. Membership is just $1,200.00 per year. How could you possibly use the excuse of not having money not to belong to an organization like JAAP? For this minimal amount of money you can develop professional contacts with other administrative professionals islandwide by meeting and sharing experiences that will be of mutual benefit, exchange ideas and gain insight into how others handle specific situations.
To enhance professional growth and leadership development, JAAP also offers conferences and seminars, monthly meetings, websites filled with information and access to professional publications.
Join JAAP today! Being a part of the association will open doors to new opportunities for you. You will acquire skills that will get you noticed in your company. JAAP will make a difference in your career. So get involved, attend meetings and, take advantage of the educations and networking opportunities. Please contact the Secretariat at 926-9742 today!
Recognizing the Administrative Professional's position of trust, we resolve in all of our activities to be guided by the highest ideals for which the Jamaica Association of Administrative Professionals stands; to establish, practice and promote professionals standards, and to be ethical and understanding in all of our business associations.
