Why are Executive Assistants involved in this area?

Many of the requirements of a company secretary have a natural connection to the role of an Executive Assistant. In organisations with no full-time company secretaries, organisations encourage Executive Assistants to participate in this vital area of company administration. Executive Assistants in numerous industries are finding themselves involved in this exciting area, which carries a lot of responsibility.
