Demming was elected as the first President of the decentralized CAAP Board, along with the following members: 1st Vice President – Carol Ann Crossley (Trinidad and Tobago); 2nd Vice President and PRO – Marcia Kirby (Jamaica); Honorary Secretary – Joan Haywood (Guyana); Treasurer and Assistant Secretary – Lois Harris (St Kitts-Nevis). Two Territorial Representatives are also part of the new board: Southern Caribbean – Carol Joseph (Trinidad and Tobago) and Northern Caribbean – Carol Charles (Barbados).
Cyndie Demming is no stranger to the admin profession, and has served with distinction as President of the National Association of Administrative Professionals – St Kitts Chapter (NAAP). Her goals as the President of CAAP (2012-2014) are ambitious, but Ms Demming is ready to take on the challenge, said an official statement.
She intends to increase membership in the region through training and development, forge partnerships with the private and public sectors in the Caribbean, make CAAP a financially viable organization and attain certification for CAAP members.
CAAP is committed to the objective of its motto: “United Towards a Better World” and envisages a vibrant organization embracing all secretaries and administrative professionals; forging links which surmount political considerations and jealousies; and raising to new heights the standard of the profession in the region.
The 12th Convention of the Caribbean Association of Administrative Professionals (CAAP) was held July 7th – 12th in Kingston, Jamaica. This biennial meeting is considered the best learning, networking, inspirational and fun event on CAAP’s calendar, and aims to bring together subject matter experts and Office Professionals to share their experiences, impart knowledge and engage in discussions. Consequently, Caribbean Administrative Professionals are better equipped to create solutions that would effectively deal with the challenges they may encounter in their professional and personal lives.
Previously, the entire Board which serves a two-year term was located in one Caribbean territory, but from 2012 onwards, the Board will be decentralized with Board Members hailing from different countries.
The National Association of Administrative Professionals (NAAP) has congratulated President Cyndie on this latest achievement and pledged its support as she works to further the aims and objectives of the local and regional associations.
