I recently received a brochure for a conference for assistants and the cost is about $1,600 for a weekend conference. The topics are really good and I'd like to go, but could not afford it. I was wondering do other assistants go to these conferences and pay on their own or does the employer usually pay?

I would suggest you join the local chapter of International Assn of Admin Professionals (get your company to pay the annual dues!) You will learn more, and get great networking opportunities.

I joined IAAP about a year ago, and you are right the networking is great. I decided if I was going to join I might as well be an active member. This month the new board will take over and I am involved in membership. Not sure what it will involve, but I am happy to do it. I have introduced IAAP to our firm and they now pay membership for two of us and for the monthly dinner meetings. It really is a great place to be if you are an assistant who is serious about your career.
