Biographical/Historical Information

The Richmond Chapter of the National Office Management Association was organized in 1940 with 31 charter members. Coinciding with a change in the name of the national (international) organization, the name of the chapter was changed on January 1, 1964 to the Richmond Chapter of the Administrative Management Society. The objectives of the Richmond Chapter are: 1. To promote a free exchange of ideas in office organization, operation and management. 2. To promote efficiency and economy in office administration by encouraging the application of scientific methods and standardization. 3. To assist educational institutions in interpreting the needs of commerce and industry relating to suitable training for a business career. 4. To hold meetings from time to time to consider and discuss subjects of mutual interest in the general field of administrative management. 5. To encourage the professionalization of the Chapter in the Society's program for certification of administrative managers.
