AIOP National Theme
The world has changed since the pandemic. When the pandemic began, there was a huge change for staff and their workplaces. Clearly, the way we work has changed, its processes and how we do business.
Now that staff are returning to the office and in some cases not full-time, many workplaces continue to go through a reinvention process.
The role of the office professional has been redefined over history and will continue to be redefined.
The theme is Redefining the role of the Office Professional.
