The EA role will not disappear, it’ll just continue to evolve as technology advances. As long as we are willing to learn and adapt, we’ll always be around.

Yep KPMG1, too much redundancy here. It's like Fordism! Job is broken down into pieces where as an EA you spend hours setting up meeting in calendar. You really do not feel like an Executive Assistant. You have some who treat you as receptionist or mere secretary. Some of requests am asked to do are laughable . Like add electronic signature to letter. You hit the ceiling pretty quickly too in terms of career advancement

It won’t go away but it will change. Just like back in the day when Admins mainly got coffee and did typing. Computers came and other software and we adapted and changed the roles.

I’ve said years ago that eventually technology will replace most of the functions of the EA but they’ll always be a need to have a human touch as well. They’ll always be a need for a second set of eyes and hands for meetings and such. The biggest change I do see however is from this pandemic and it’s that a lot of EA workers will start to be home-based to save overhead costs but also to a able the assistant to be more flexible.

I don’t know.. I block out their calendars, which is necessary, and they (partners) want nothing to do with their calendar/scheduling. What about expenses, travel arrangements, and everything else?

Right, but you do all of that at their request. I think this post is getting at these programs being able to take in a request and do what you do without human intervention. Not sure if I agree, but heck, if Tesla can mass produce self-driving cars, I wouldn't be surprised.
