Congratulations to our recent CCAP/CCAP Associate graduate!
Lindsay Baker, CCAP
Lindsay has worked in a variety of administrative roles throughout her career. Education and professional development have always been a motivator for her; not only to better herself, but to add value to the businesses she has worked with. Lindsay found the CCAP certification, and her employer was incredibly supportive in her ambition to pursue this path. She was impressed with the courses provided through the University of Alberta, and she found that they added to the foundational skills she already developed throughout her career. The Association of Administrative Professionals has opened a number of doors for Lindsay, and she is very proud to be a member. She is excited to have completed her designation and looks forward to the many opportunities that await her.
