The Distinguished Secretaries' Society of Pakistan (DSSP) was established in 1971 for lady Secretaries working for the senior-most executives in private and multinational companies in Pakistan. In 1982, DSSP became a member of the Association of Secretaries in Asia, now called ~Association of Secretaries and Administrative Professionals in Asia-Pacific (ASA) ~. Today, DSSP members are a recognised force in the office and enjoy preferential treatment in the job market.
The DSSP currently has almost 300 members on its rolls and has now expanded its membership to encompass Associate Memberships to cater to the ever-increasing demand. Instituting this new class of Membership with strict admission criteria, encourages ambitious young professionals to apply for membership and work on various Committees, thereby generating fresh blood and new ideas into the DSSP.
The Society holds monthly tea/luncheon meetings at which are discussed various matters of interest to the Secretarial profession in general and Pakistan in particular. Seminars, workshops and secretarial courses conducted by DSSP`s own senior members as well as outstanding professionals in various business disciplines, are among the routine activities enjoyed by the general body.
