An Entire Week Dedicated to One Person

McCormick & Schmick's seem to think that this week is dedicated to just one administrative professional.


According to the International Association of Administrative Professionals, Administrative Professionals Week should be written without an apostrophe. It's also wrong to refer to one person as "they."

Thanks to Nancy for forwarding me this gramatically incorrect promotional e-mail.

I think it's better without the apostrophe, actually. That implies that the week is for assistants rather than giving them ownership of the week.

I don't see what's wrong with this sign. It's basically the same as Mother's Day. Obviously it's not a day just for one mother.
