On April 24, 1952, the Mansfield "Hill City Chapter" of the National Secretaries Association hosted an information tea for 25 secretaries and office workers in Ashland. From this arose the Ashland Chapter, whose Charter Meeting and installation of officers was held on May 21, 1952. Nineteen Charter Members were welcomed by Mrs. Lilyan Miller of Akron, Vice-President of the Northeast District of the N.S.A. Letta Sigler, Secretary of the Ashland Chamber of Commerce, was installed as the new chapter's first President. Three Charter Members still attend meetings.

The Ashland Chapter was officially named the ASESIBA Chapter on October 30, 1952. "ASESIBA" (a-ses'-e-ba) was the name of the farm of Mr. William Duff, historian of Ashland County, whose work in the Johnny Appleseed cause brought him and his life's service from the land of oblivion to living memory in his native country about here. Mr. Duff's farm was located east of Ashland, and the letters in ASESIBA stand for "At Sunrise Every Soul Is Born Anew."

ASESIBA has members from Ashland and Richland Counties, and meets at 6 pm on the last Tuesday of each month at various locations in both counties (except during the summer months of July and August).

The Chapter awards a scholarship each year to a deserving student continuing education in the administrative field. An Administrative Professionals Day program is planned each year.

One of the most active committees is the Administrative Professionals Week Committee which organizes activities during the week for all area administrative professionals to enjoy.  These activities offer us the opportunity to network with other administrative professionals and also to recruit new members to our Chapter.

The Civic Committee organizes various activities throughout the year to support local civic and charity organizations in our area.  One example is a Chinese auction held in April.  Our membership also contributes to the Retirement Foundation Trust.

A scholarship auction is held each year to provide scholarship dollars to area students who are furthering their education in the office administration field.  Two scholarships are presented annually during our Administrative Professionals Week Luncheon and Seminar.

The CPS/CAP Service Committee is composed of members who have attained their CPS and/or CAP certification.  A series of study group sessions take place twice a year in an effort to prepare those who are pursuing the CPS and CAP certification.  We currently have 10 members who have earned their CPS and three members who have earned their CAP.

In  August  1987, a secretary by the name of Linda Kraschinsky came up with the  idea  of  forming  another PSI chapter in Columbus, Ohio.  She was, at that  time,  a  member of the Columbus Chapter, which holds its meetings in the evenings.

Linda solicited a group of secretaries at Nationwide Insurance Company with the  idea  of  a  PSI  chapter in the downtown Columbus area.  Nationwide's secretaries  wanted  to  make  this  chapter a noon meeting to make it more accessible  to  young  mothers  and  office  professionals just too busy to attend  meetings  in  the evenings. The committee named the new chapter the "Heart of Ohio."

The  first  meeting  and  the installation of officers for the newly formed chapter  was  held  on  November  17,  1987,  at  the  Nationwide Insurance headquarters.  There  were  35 charter members. The goal of the chapter was the   same   as  the  PSI  goal,  "To  provide  educational  resources  and opportunities for secretaries."

A  chapter  newsletter  was  developed  and  is not mailed electronically.

We conducted our first Annual Seminar in May of 1992. It was a huge success and we have continued to have a half-day seminar annually.

One  of  the  milestones  in  our 15-year history occurred in 1992, when we assisted  the  Columbus Chapter in hosting the PSI International Convention in  Columbus,  Ohio.  It was a wonderful experience with approximately 2000 attendees from countries around the world.

In  addition, over the years, the chapter has provided student scholarships and  has  been  very active in Certified Professional Secretaries (CPS) and Certified  Administrative  Professional  (CAP) study courses and proctoring exams.  We  now  have  over  65  members who hold the CPS designation and 8 members hold the CAP designation.

In  2003, the Heart of Ohio Chapter sponsored one new chapters in Ohio, the Polaris North Star Chapter.

In 2003, the Heart of Ohio Chapter instituted free or greatly reduced cost  "Lunch 'N Learn" sessions featuring speakers from Avery Dennison, MeadWestVaco, and other outside sources.

Our  chapter  is  healthy  and  flourishing, now well over 115 members. Our members continue to grow in development, professionalism, and education.

Zanesville, Ohio has a rich history that spans back 200 years. It is located on the original National Road that early settlers traveled westward from the central Colonies. On September 30th 1947, the National Secretaries Association (NSA) chartered its Zanesville Chapter, with 11 members. Evelyn Richardson served the new chapter as its first President.

We have grown to include a membership of approximately 70, most of who are very active and attend meetings regularly. We are honored with the continued participation and fellowship of five of the original charter members. Their experience and support help our organization stay the course set 50 years ago.

In the early years of our existence, the members raised money for the needy children in our area who needed medical services by typing envelopes. Today our funding raising efforts are dedicated to providing scholarships for students in the administrative professions. Each year the Ways and Means committee develops a plan for fund raising activities to support our scholarship program.

In our 50 years as a professional organization, the Zanesville Chapter has had several members who have served on the Ohio Division and International Boards. Zanesville Chapter also has the distinction of being the sponsoring Chapter for the 1998 Ohio Division Secretary of the Year, who was also selected 1998 International Secretary of the Year. Another distinction of which we are very proud is sponsoring the Land of Legends Chapter (Newark) in 1998. The Chapter has many talented and supportive members who are well known and active in the charities of the communities in which they live.

The newsletter "Y-Chatter" has won an International Honorable Mention award, and is published monthly. (Zanesville is known affectionately as the "Y-City", so named because of our unique "Y" bridge that spans both the Muskingum and the Licking Rivers. When the National Road was constructed in the early 1800’s, a bridge across the Muskingum River was required, but political considerations led to the erection of a single bridge that connected the residents on three different sides of the rivers.)

Monthly meetings consist of dinner, social time, chapter business, and a brief program. Programs are of relevance to our changing roles in the professional environment, and often are of an educational nature. The Zanesville Chapter meets the second Tuesday of each month, usually in the meeting rooms located in the lower level of Genesis Hospital, Bethesda Campus. The meetings begin at 5:30 p.m. and dinner reservations are requested by Monday at noon.
