SAVE $$$ — HERE’S MY BEST VALUE OFFER FOR YOU (THE PRICE INCLUDES EVERYTHING LISTED ABOVE AND LOTS MORE ):
This purchase includes giving you online access to the Virtual Association for Administrative Professionals (VAAP) association membership site for one year to download these items listed above:
√ The Effective Admin Tips Series
Plus you get…
√ single subscription to The Effective Admin newsletter (delivered 6 times per year/digital PDF format)
Plus you get more information and resources such as…
√ The Effective Admin In-Depth Special Report Series
And you’ll get…
√ a printable VAAP membership certificate with your name on it (to frame or put in your portfolio).
And, of course,
√ you’ll have the right to tell employers and prospective ones that you’re a member of this educational and professional association specific to administrative professionals
So, basically this membership includes all of the items listed above and through this row on this page for individuals plus more learning resources. This is an individual membership price (per person).
Calculating the Value You Get:
The value delivered in this VAAP package of materials is priceless, figuratively speaking; however, if you want to break it down literally, the cost is just 54 cents per day for a single annual VAAP membership for one person: YOU
Investing just 54 cents per day (for 365 days) in your professional development can have big returns for you and for your employer. For the latter for instance, imagine a single tip you learn through VAAP resources helps you to save one hour per day (that you then use to work on something else — or get home on time).
The monetary value of that tip is whatever your wage (or salary broken down) that you make for one hour per day times the number of days you would normally have used that hour to do that task or assignment. So if you make a modest $12 per hour, you’ve just saved the company $12/hour times approx. 200 working days per year = $2,400 savings per year. That’s a pretty good accomplishment to flaunt –one you learned on a 54 cent per day investment in your professional development (or $197 per year investment). In fact, when you explain that ROI (return on investment) to your employer, he or she may be willing to reimburse you for VAAP first-year membership or outright pay for it for you. Just ask!
The choice for you to make now is whether or not YOU believe investing 54 cents per day in yourself and your professional development is a good value.
If you believe VAAP resources will make a good addition to your personal administrative professional development reference library and supplement your other learning resources for administrative professionals, click the Add To Cart button below to checkout and get instant access to all of the materials.
