EPAA has helped me both professionally and personally – it has given me an organisation to belong to and rely on. Through their hard work and efforts, we are changing the face of the assistant profession and being a member of the organisation, means being a part of it, and that is priceless. Through events, online resources and the wider EPAA community, you can learn new skills, build on old ones and thus develop your career. The EPAA name commends respect throughout the industry and beyond, and I for one, have never been prouder to be a part of such an extraordinary organisation. I recommend them entirely and without hesitation.
I have been a member of EPPA since its launch in 2016 and I am extremely proud to be one of its Fellow members. As an EA myself, it is fantastic to have a professional association to belong to which is led by someone who is just as passionate about the profession as its members. EPAA has enabled me to meet some other fantastic PAs/EAs who regard the role as a career and not just a job. An association of this calibre was long overdue and I am confident that its leaders are taking the profession in the right direction for future generations of PAs/EAs.
Joining EPAA has been one of the best things I could have done for my career, I honestly believe I would never have got to where I am now without Vic and EPAAs help . Its opened me up to a world of learning opportunities from some of the most influential people in the profession, as well as some incredible members. I’ve also built up the most amazing network through EPAA, who I consider as my friends and people I can turn to for some solid advice. If you are a career Assistant or want to be, the first thing you should do is join EPAA.
I am proud to be a Fellow member of EPAA, as they are leading the way in championing our profession and challenging the perception of what it means to be a PA.
Joining EPAA has empowered me to stay inspired and motivated in my role as a PA. It has allowed me to broaden my knowledge by having the opportunity to attend their training days, webinar sessions and bi-annual conference, this in turn has allowed me to stay informed and up to date on the latest industry innovations, research and trends. It has helped me to take charge of my career, give me the opportunity to develop my skills as a leader, which has helped not only with my personal growth, but growth within my organisation. Networking has been invaluable and EPAA has created an amazing PA community, one that is supportive, encouraging understanding, inspiring and passionate. I have been able to connect and create professional relationships and make new friends since becoming a member.
Through starring in the ‘Not Just A Girl’s Job’ campaign, I’ve had the chance to meet so many other PAs. I feel EPAA campaigns break down the barriers that are a bit of a taboo subject, that most people find awkward talking about. My membership with EPAA will broaden my knowledge with the courses offered, and I will meet more members at the conferences available. If I’m honest, I haven’t seen any other organisation offer the services EPAA does. EPAA fills that missing gap as far as I’m concerned.
I’ve been a Fellow of EPAA from the very beginning and can’t rate the work they are doing highly enough. They have raised the profile of PA/EAs within the UK and are championing our role not just within companies but at Government level as well. From a personal note, my clients can see that I am committed to my profession and EPAA offers not just great support but a fantastic community that supports each other in any way we can.
Being a Fellow of EPAA has given me pride in my role as an Executive Assistant. For me it is like wearing a badge of honour and gives me credibility belonging to a professional body.
I know with EPAA that I have access to the most up-to-date, relevant information pertinent to my role and I have access to EPAA members who are willing to share their knowledge and offer support and encouragement.
Going forwards I am excited to be part of EPAA’s Continuous Professional Development (CPD) programme. This is needed in our profession and I am so grateful that Victoria is setting this up. Staying up-to-date on latest skills and knowledge is crucial and being part of the CPD programme will give me a framework to continuously grow and develop.
EPAA to me is the sail in the wind, guiding the profession in the right direction.
I am a proud Fellow of EPAA since day one and continue to advocate to all. Yes, there are other associations for the profession, but none with as clear a voice and with the specific aim of championing the role so universally. Leading the way with trailblazing campaigns such as Not Just a Girls Job, Workplace Bullying and Time To Train; partnering with highly acclaimed training providers such as Adam Fidler Academy; and now bringing CPD accreditation to the profession, you will be hard pressed to find a team with as strong and dedicated a leader as at the helm of EPAA. In addition to the multiple benefits for a very reasonable membership fee, EPAA has a lively online social media presence further building the PA/EA/VA network, empowering individuals to develop, network and learn whilst making real friendships along the way. Don’t delay, apply for your membership today!
EPAA is a forward thinking organisation, constantly evolving and challenging the perceptions of the EA/PA industry. I was delighted to join EPAA as a Fellow Member at inception and have found it invaluable in support of my personal development and in strengthening my network of contacts. I enjoy making the most of the EPAA training days where I learn from the best and continue to grow my knowledge. For the future, I see EPAA as the must have membership for those wishing to develop their careers and connect with likeminded professionals.
