Jan 01, 20061 min

Kudos – What makes a good executive or administrative assistant? Outstanding organizational skills? Judgment and ferocity as a gatekeeper? A knack for anticipating and solving problems? CIO wants to recognize the best administrative assistant in honor of Administrative Professionals Day on April 26. If your assistant is tops, tell us why.

The rules: CIOs must do the nominating and can only nominate their own administrative or executive assistant. Write an e-mail no longer than 150 words telling us why your assistant should be recognized as the best of the best. (Be sure to include an anecdote to make your case.) Send the e-mail with “admin contest” in the subject line to Elana Varon, Trendlines editor, at by Jan 31. Please include your telephone number for confirmation.

CIO editors will choose a winner and write about that person in our April 15 issue. The honoree will also receive a bouquet of flowers from the boss and CIO.
