IAAP Summit is a conference unlike any other

Administrative Professionals, or more accurately Strategic Business Partners, come from all over the world to experience the education and connections that make it the can’t-miss event of the year. Whether this is your 1st Summit or 50th, you’re sure to leave with a renewed passion for your role, best practices to help you work more efficiently and effectively with others, and an invaluable network of new connections.

Education Opportunities

Learning happens in all different places and ways. Some learning comes from a trainer in a classroom-type setting, and some learning comes from other admins who have walked the road you’re on. IAAP recognizes the immense value of both and creates space for all types of learning at Summit. Whether you are in a deep dive session, a connect & learn session, or chatting with a fellow attendee at a social event, stay open to learn new things. You’ll grow in ways you never thought possible!

Deep Dive: (deep dahyv), n. an experiential extended education workshop that allows you plenty of time to learn and practice a particular area or topic

General Session: (jen-er-uhl sesh-uh n), n. a session for all attendees to hear from IAAP leadership, celebrate our global ties in the Parade of Nations, interact and learn with the plenary speaker, and be inspired by the closing keynote


Connect & Learn Sessions

Connect & Learn: (kuh-nekt & lurn), n. a session dedicated to allowing you the opportunity for intentional learning from fellow attendees

Peer Pods: (peer pod), n. roundtable discussions with a facilitator and thought-provoking questions on a specific topic

Ed Talks: (ed tawk), n. 10-minute TED talk-style segments, chock full of useful tips and stories relevant to the administrative profession

Hot Seats: (hot seets), n. a group think-tank environment that utilizes a facilitator and the audience of attendees to solve a challenge a fellow attendee is facing
