What is Secretary?

Who is a Secretary?

Definition of Secretary:
-----------------------------
Generally by ‘Secretary we mean a personal officer of an executive or of a superior. The term ‘Secretary’ derived from the Latin word ‘Secretarius’, which means a confidential officer.

That is in the past primary function of a secretary was writing and transmitting ‘Secret messages’. But in modern time ‘confidentiality’ is no more key factor of the secretarial job. Now, secretary is treated as the principal liaison officer of a firm or of a company.
According to Prof. J. P. Bose, “functionally the term secretary means a person who writes in secret on behalf of his superior or for a body”.

According to Oxford Dictionary, Secretary means, “One whose office is to write for another, especially one who is employed to conduct correspondence to keep records and to transact various other business for a person or for a society, corporation or public body.”

In the light of above discussion it can be stated that, a secretary is a person who works under an authority, writes for the authority and maintain all sorts of correspondence with the concerned parties.
