Abstract:  In our world of small non-profit organizations, as often as not the "secretary" is also the bookkeeper, office manager, janitor, and fundraiser. But whatever the actual setup of your organization, you will likely find information of value in this book. As the sub-title indicates, the primary focus of this book is on the mechanics of office management. Among the topics covered are office design, ergonomics, getting the most mileage out of your copier, proper lighting for VDT's, filing, procedure manuals, meetings and minutes, and handling office mail. Report - and letter-writing are discussed, and there is a chapter on spelling, punctuation, and grammar, a list of other reference books and manuals is provided. Not the last word in office manuals, but not a bad thing to have around to browse through and refer to.
