Administrative Assistants

Administrative Assistant Learning Community (AALC)

Connecting Through Our Strengths

Today’s administrative professionals need to be skilled in leadership, project management, technology and writing skills, along with advanced communication, critical thinking, budget and finance knowledge and work/life balance. The AALC is a community of SLCC administrative assistants and secretary III’s. New employees become members of the AALC on their first day of employment!  A needs assessment survey is sent out to all members the summer prior to each fiscal year. The training events are planned accordingly, in alignment with the needs assessment results. Monthly training events take place on Zoom or in the Professional Development Center, the first or second Tuesday of the months of Sept, Oct, Nov, Feb, March and April.
