Luncheon to Honor Administrative Professionals


The Arkansas Tech University Department of Continuing Education is still  accepting reservations for the annual Administrative Professionals’ Day Seminar and Luncheon.

This marks the seventh year for the seminar and luncheon, which will take place at the Lake Point Conference Center on Wednesday.

Organizers say the event is open to those in the River Valley and is a great way to thank administrative professionals for their contribution to the workplace.

The event is scheduled to begin at 10:30 a.m., and organizers say those attending will be treated to a gourmet lunch and the opportunity to win several door prizes.

Stephen Svetz from the Arkansas Attorney General’s Office will provide the keynote address.  Some of the topics Svetz will discuss include the growing problem of identity theft, ways to protect against identity theft and the mitigation process.

Svetz joined the Attorney General’s Office in 2001 having previously served as the chief investigator handling financial complaints related to credit card fraud and identity theft.

He is a certified law enforcement instructor, and he currently heads the identity theft passport program at the Attorney General’s Office.

Lisa Cochran, director of continuing education, says the event has become a popular way to celebrate the efforts of office professionals.

“We are excited to offer this event again this year,” adds Cochran.  “This luncheon is truly a great way to honor office professionals, and we hope to once again provide an enjoyable day of good food, learning and fun as we honor these important professionals.”

Tickets to attend the seminar and luncheon are $45 for the general public and $40 for Arkansas Tech faculty and staff.
