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).
Currently there are 14 member-country Associations
Every alternate year, a Secretarial Congress is held in one of the ASA member countries, by rotation. DSSP hosted its first Congress in May 1990 in Karachi, Pakistan.
We are honoured to be hosting our second ASA Congress from
the 17 September
2014 at the Avari Towers, Karachi, Pakistan. The theme is “Standing High in Challenging times!”
Today, DSSP members are a recognised force in the workplace and enjoy preferential treatment in the job market. The DSSP currently has about 200 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 new thoughts and ideas into the DSSP.
