Our Vision

Our vision is to be recognized statewide as the premiere organization for resources, information and leadership for executive assistants in Washington State government.

 

Our Mission

The mission of the Executive Assistants Group is to contribute to the success of our profession by providing:

 

  •      Best Practices
  •      Access to information and emerging issues in state government
  •      Ongoing specialized training and support

 

If the above activities sound like something you would like to be involved in, please contact one of the Board Officers. 

 

History 

In 1990, a small group of executive assistants began meeting to share information and discuss issues unique to their positions in state government. Since then, the group has mentored many executive assistants in state government, provides networking opportunities, sponsors conferences and trainings and works with the Governor's Office to publish the Governor's Executive and General Correspondence Guidelines for the State of Washington.

 

The group sponsors an annual training conference in the fall for all state agency support staff. We are involved within the community by volunteering as a group. We participate in the United Way Day of Caring and volunteer activities within the communities we live in.
