Quick question...

Right now, my member title is "PA".
What in the world does it mean? Confused

I think you'll find that means "Personal Assistant", Still Waters... like a secretary. You have progressed from being a "Temp" (temporary employee)... keep posting away and you'll maybe one day become CEO... Laughing

Aha! Thanks, Paul. CEO, huh? Very Happy

Aaron's a "Retired Oil Baron."
I guess he can work his way up to a "Retired Aardvark." Wink

I'm assuming you're not asking what CEO stands for... ?

Never thought of that one... Very Happy When we came up with the member titles, we tried to think of the highest business title we could. So we just thought of someone that no doubt earns shed loads of money and came up with 'Oil Baron'. And then we thought to ourselves... no, that's not right... there's one thing that's better than being an 'Oil Baron' and that's being a 'Retired Oil Baron' and so that's what we ended up with. Very Happy

Nope, I know what CEO means. Smile

Maybe, PA is a "UK thing?" While we do have personal assistants in the US, I've never heard them referred to as PA's. I was staring at my title, wondering... is it Pennsylvania? ... did I type in the wrong state in my profile? I even checked my profile, just to make sure. Laughing

PA is a term used in the UK... are you sure it's not used in the US. It's a sort of glorified secretary, I suppose. What term would you in the US for that?

BTW, FWIW, IMHO we've had enough acronyms for one day... Razz

Sorry for the late reply... just noticed this thread. In the U.S., I think the equivalent is "Administrative Assistant" or just "Admin."

Thanks... maybe that's a better route for us to take, then. Anyone have a preferred sequence of member titles, along the same lines as we have now...?
