WHEREAS, the efficient functioning of modern society is largely dependent upon effective communication, and the modern methods of communication have come more and more to rest in the hands of secretaries; and

WHEREAS, today's secretary must have at her command tact, diplomacy, increasing business and economic knowledge, and decision-making ability in the greater role the secretary is performing as a member of the management team; and

WHEREAS, the important contribution made by secretaries in business, government, and the professions of our country has been recognized by designating the last week in April as Secretaries' Week and Wednesday, April 25, 1973, as Secretaries' Day.

NOW, THEREFORE:

BE IT RESOLVED by the Senate and the House of Representatives of the 127th General Assembly of the State of Delaware, with the approval of the Governor, that the members of the General Assembly hereby urge all citizens of the State to recognize the efforts made by our secretaries in the operation of industry, the professions, and government and their role as silent partners in American Business.
