What’s Admingling?

It’s a networking and learning experience created exclusively for executive assistants, office managers, and workplace operators (aka Ninjas). Each Admingling event is an opportunity to collaborate with other Ninjas through in-depth conversations on the topics that matter to your career and the future of the admin profession.

And because we’re firm believers in the power of ambiance, we host Admingling in unexpected venues that feel inspiring (and sometimes a little quirky). Local fare and tasty drinks help fuel the special mix of brainstorming, idea-sharing, and goal-setting that is Admingling.

ADMINGLING NINJA TIPS

Maximize Your
Admingling Experience

Networking favors the bold

Introduce yourself. Aim to interact with every person in the room. Make it rain business cards (or LinkedIn connections). You’re there to connect with other Ninjas, so be bold! The more you put into networking, the more you’ll get out of it.

Ninjas are the best resources

Curious about another industry? Want to know what it’s like to work at a startup? Got a favorite app or vendor that’s completely changed your game? Speak up, ask questions, and trade tips.

Cash in on peer-to-peer support

So many Ninjas work in a department of one, making peer support hard to find. Admingling is your chance to share those questions, ideas, and concerns that only another Ninja can understand.

Testimonials

“Admingling events give Ninjas from all different types of administrative roles an opportunity to get together, collaborate, and have fun. I have grown exponentially in my professional life from participating in these events and have benefited greatly from the conversations, connections, and new ideas I’ve made during them.

Marcie L., Office Manager

This was my first event and from the time we walked up to the registration desk until the event ended, I had an absolutely amazing time. I never felt out of place nor did I feel alone. And the takeaways and helpful tips from fellow Ninjas were #priceless!

Yvette J., Sr. Assistant Manager

Admingling is such a great time! I get so inspired after attending an Admingling event with admin professionals such as myself. It’s exciting to learn about new tools, see old friends and make new ones, and re-invigorate my administrative spirit.

Lisa W., Executive Assistant

Q: How often do Admingling events happen?

A: Admingling events are hosted two times a year in our established cities.

Q: What’s the dress code?

Q: Can I start my own Admingling?

A: Our events are solely hosted by our team at HQ. You can check out the city request form. We also encourage you to get together with your area admins in whatever way you can!
