National Office Membership (NAEOP)

National Association of Educational Office Professionals

Louise Henderson Nelson paved the way for today’s office professionals

During 1934, Superintendents of 157 cities nationwide were asked to recommend secretaries to represent their school systems for a proposed organizational meeting. Ninety-six secretaries responded. This effort was sparked by Louise Henderson Nelson who was active in the Philadelphia Clerical Assistants organization. Since that exciting day in the spring of 1934, the National Association of School Secretaries – later changed to National Association of Educational Secretaries, now the National Association of Educational Office Professionals – has developed outstanding programs for educational office personnel.
