Huntsville, Ala. – Stacey Brewer, executive coordinator for Neil Lamb, PhD, at the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology, was recently appointed as board chair for the International Association of Administrative Professionals (IAAP) Foundation, the only 501(c)(3) organization in the nation whose sole commitment is to the success of the administrative profession.
The IAAP is dedicated to helping office and administrative professionals advance their career in a demanding and ever-changing business environment. Together, IAAP and the IAAP Foundation form a support team for admins around the world.
Brewer will serve a two-year term as board chair.
“My involvement in IAAP played a significant role in turning what I once considered ‘just a job’ into an incredibly fulfilling career,” said Brewer. “I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity to give back to the profession through my service to the IAAP Foundation.”
As an active member of the IAAP, Brewer has held multiple leadership positions within the organization and is a 2015 graduate of the inaugural class of the IAAP Leadership Academy. He has served on the IAAP Foundation board since 2013, during which time the foundation invested more than $1.1 million to advance and promote the administrative profession and provide opportunities to connect, learn, lead and excel.
“Successful organizations depend on top-tier administrative professionals like Stacey Brewer,” said Lamb. “Admins are arguably the critical ‘connective tissue’ that keep a group informed and on track. Stacey is key to our educational outreach program’s success and I’m appreciative that IAAP has equipped him with relevant and timely professional development tools. We’re proud of his work with the Foundation and excited about his appointment as board chair.”
