Who We Are

National Association of Administrative Professionals of Trinidad & Tobago (NAAP) is the premier organization for Administrative Professionals in the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago. Its main thrust has been and continues to be the holistic development of Administrative Professionals, by providing a forum for education, training and sharing experiences within the administrative professionals’ field.

Although globally observed on an annual basis, NAAP is the only organization recognized to make official pronouncements in respect of Administrative Professionals Week.

NAAP is governed by a seven-member Board of Directors (BOD), elected from among its membership, to serve a two-year term of office. The BOD comprises: a President, Vice President/CAAP Liaison Officer, Secretary, Treasurer, Assistant Secretary, Assistant Treasurer and a Communications Officer, who report to the Membership at monthly meetings. Assisting the BOD are several Committee Chairmen and/or Co-ordinators.


NAAP was founded in July 1969 under the collaborative efforts of Ms. Grace Talma, the first President, Ms. Velma Jardine, a member of NSA International (now International Association of Administrative Professionals – IAAP) and then Mayor of the City of Port-of-Spain, Alderman Hamilton Holder. The Association was officially launched by Ms. Shirley Englund of the National Secretaries Association, USA. However, it was on January 09, 1988 that NAAP’s Headquarters (nSa House) was formally opened.
