Monthly meeting of admins a good idea?
Question: I wish to start a monthly meeting to include as many of the Administrative Assistants throughout the organization as possible. Does anyone have any hints on if monthly meetings are a good idea, if one hour is enough time, etc.?
I envision these meetings not only building relationships among all the assistants, but also giving all assistants an idea of what each area is currently working on and, if they’re working on similar projects, allowing them to share feedback. Also, they can update one another on any major process changes in their departments. (We have a problem with one unit deciding to disband some information that is needed for reports, not aware that other departments are counting on it all being located in one place.) — Wisconsin
