Prediction: Admin Week 2017 Will Be Next-Level ADMAZING

We’ve been planning Admin Week for months. We’ve brainstormed, researched, and taste-tested. We’ve scoured the market for the perfect partners and searched the globe for the shiniest All-Stars. And honestly? We’ve loved every second of it! We are so PROUD of our Ninja community, and we want you to have the best Admin Week possible!

Let’s take a look at what we have on tap!

Five days of Ninja-worthy giveaways!

We hear you’re pretty quick, Ninja. Get ready to live up to the hype with our daily Flash Raffles. We’re running a different one featuring a new sponsor every day of Admin Week. We announce the prize details, open the raffle, and pick a winner all in one day. So be sure to look out for our morning emails. You’re eligible to win a prize every single day. That’s right—there’s no limit on the number of prizes one person can win! And it’s completely free for Ninjas to enter!

We’re keeping prize details under wraps but, out of curiosity, might you be interested in $500 in airfare from Delta Air Lines? What about catered meals from ezCater? Bottomless high-quality snacks from NatureBox? (Psst! Find more hints here!)

4/26 – OfficeNinjas Admin Bash in SF

It’s the party of the year, and it’s almost here.

OfficeNinjas Admin Bash

If you’ve never been to Admin Bash, this year’s the year to fix that. We’re going all out for our 5th annual celebration. Expect our signature massage lounge (if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it), a series of delicious and visually stunning interactive food stations, and raffle prizes you’re going to want to walk away with.

And where else can you network with 400 Office Ninjas from every industry and all corners of the country? (We have admins flying in from Dallas, New York, Washington DC, and even London!) Our friends from The Go Game are facilitating a killer networking activity/scavenger hunt that you won’t want to miss. There are a few tickets left, but they’re selling fast!

OfficeNinjas All-Stars Awards

We’re revealing the winners during Admin Week!

OfficeNinjas All-Stars

We scoured the globe for five of the brightest, shiniest, most impressive All-Stars. We received thousands of nominations (more than any year prior)! It was no easy feat, but we managed to select five deserving winners hailing from San Francisco, Milwaukee, Seattle, Washington DC, and Fairfax. We can’t wait for you to read their insightful Q&As and pore over the stunning images from their professional photo shoots!

    Most admins work very hard and longer hours that anyone imagines. I know I am constantly thinking about how to improve our organization and make things easier for everyone in the organization, not just 9-5. The skills required to be a top-notch admin are very diverse – you need to know a little bit about everything.

    For the last 8.5 years, I’ve been a volunteer administrative assistant to the Director of Volunteer Services at one of our local hospitals. When I first came on, they were starting the transition to a brand-new software after the old company went out of business (without telling anyone!). I spearheaded the entire operation ensuring a smooth transition to the new system & did some major clean-up of the current database. Since then, I’ve been her go-to person when it comes to managing our database. A year & a half ago, we transitioned 100+ active senior volunteers from a totally paper-based sign-in system to a touch screen for the majority of our sign-ins & it has been fantastic! I absolutely love my job, it’s the longest I’ve ever been at one place, & it’s not even paid! I’m on disability due to health issues, so I’m so thankful my boss & fellow volunteers are flexible when I need downtime. Best thing about this week though for me: it is also NATIONAL VOLUNTEER WEEK! This Wednesday we’re having our annual volunteer awards banquet, so the past few weeks have been even busier than usual. I’m looking forward to some downtime when this is all over! :)

    Hi dears,
    My name is Dashmaa. I am new to this group from Mongolia.
    I am very interested in good ideas to apply at my job and my team (there are 7 people in the team). Our company is just started a new business in Mongolian mine sector.

    It is the one week in the entire year where my profession SHINES. I have been a secretary with lots of different titles in lots of different company’s since 1977. In November 2016 I was offered the highest title of them all – Office Manager – after working here for 5 years. Admin’s are the hardest working people in the company and for that week in April we get some special attention. Thank you to the person that created Administrative Professional Week.

    1. OfficeNinjas
      author

      We agree Teresa, Ninjas like you definitely deserve an entire week. Congrats on your highest title yet!

  11. Patti T
     

    I agree with Mary! It would be a great idea to move the Office Ninja celebrations to various other cities around the country so others can attend if they happen nearby. I feel so appreciated all year long, but the people I support are especially thoughtful during Admin Professional Week. It makes my job so enjoyable, and I love the people I work with. I’ve been at UHC for 25 years, and hope to be here for many more!

    1. OfficeNinjas
      author

      Whoa, 25 years is amazing! Great job, Patti :)

  12. Rachel
     

    I really appreciate the energy of OfficeNinjas! I’m really looking forward to hearing from other admins all week about what they’re doing and how they’re being shown appreciation, either from coworkers/supervisors or other admins!

    1. OfficeNinjas
      author

      We feel you on that one, nothing makes us happier than hearing admin praise!

  13. Sandy S.
     

    I look forward to this week all year because of Office Ninjas. Keep up the great work!

      Funny how that works, we look forward to this event all year because of YOU ;)

  14. Mary
     

    I’m excited and bummed at the same time…. This event is so exciting and I love that you do this to celebrate all of us OfficeNinjas! I’m bummed that I will not be able to be there this year…. I have a thought….why not move the celebration around to different locations every year?! (Just sayin’)

    Love everything that you all do! Keep up the great job…OfficeNinjas ROCK!

      Well shucks, we think YOU rock, Mary! Make sure you’re around for the Flash Raffles!

    I am so excited to see what Admin Week will look like. I can’t wait to see the awesome giveaways I know that are in store for us. This is my first year being part of the community but I am looking forward to make new friends and networking with others at events in the future.

    I am looking forward to celebrating us!! This is the time of year we get recognized, and this year we are hosting our own Admin Appreciation Bash!! Food, fun and camaraderie. Glad I am able to help put this together for other admins at my job. Enjoy our week everyone!

  19. Christina Holzhauser
     

    I’m bummed I can’t be there! Have an awesome time everyone!!

  20. Jennifer
     

    I love that every year Administrative Professional’s Day is low key in my office. Every year is an executive retreat so many of us have a down day where we can take care of some of the easier things and celebrate at a different time during the week. (Yes, I love having some down time to take care of the lower priority items on my list.)

  21. Dana
     

    When my team sneaks up on me at my desk and surprises me with a card and a gift. They really show their appreciation of me in that moment.

  22. Erin S.
     

    I stumbled onto your website while looking for tips to improve a few things after having started with a new company and now you’re part of my daily routine. I only wish there was an event I could attend here in Australia for Admin Week. Keep up the great work and maybe we’ll see you downunder soon.

    Your newsletter is a big help to me. April 13, 2017 was my second year anniversary at my Admin Asst. job. I work in a small warehouse for a really great boss. I started as a temp through an agency and after 7 months he asked if I liked it here. When I told him yes, he asked if I would like to become an official employee of the company. I told him that I would love that. He said that first he wasn’t sure whether I would work out but when I made a spreadsheet to keep track of the invoices and billing he started to change his mind. He also said he was going to the store to get me a “While You Were Out” message pad but he was so busy he never got around to it. So, I went online, found a template for it, printed out some pages and kept the format in my computer. When calls came in I would log them into my computer and write out a printed out one to give to whichever manager the message was for. When he saw how resourceful I was in this he then decided that I would be a real asset to him and the company. Since then I was given other responsibilities which have freed him up to spend more time on the work he needed to do and oversee in the warehouse. I can actually say that I love getting up every morning and going to work.

      It’s Ninjas like you, Dolores, that helps everyone around you to love getting up and going to work. Take some time this week and celebrate like the motivated, self-starting badass you are!

    Looking forward to everything!! It’ll be my first adminbash! Exciting times!

  85. Andrea Estrada
     

    I look forward to the Admin Week raffles from Office Ninja’s every year. You all really do your research to select items that an Admin would appreciate and could really put to use! Thank you for showing us the appreciation we deserve!

  86. Lauren

  90. Mary Ellen
     

    To use a quote from another fine institution, being an admin for me is not just a job, it’s an adventure. An adventure I have been on most of my life and I truly enjoy it! I was meant to do this!

  91. Robin
     

    I really like this week! It is like a holiday week. Admins do a lot and sometimes people forget to say “thank you” and say how much they appreciate all your hard work. Admin Week gives them an opportunity to recognize those that are the stability and structure of an organization.

  92. Kris M
     

    I’m looking forward to some of the events (webinars, chair massages, lunch) that our office has planned for the Admin Team in celebration of Admin Week. Of course, we are planning the events:)

    It’s always a nice surprise as to how my employer remembers me – usually it’s a nice cash bonus, sometimes accompanied by a wonderful lunch out.

  96. Michele Bolton
     

    I’m looking forward to all the fun and exciting things happening this week, but most importantly, I find the OfficeNinja newsletter to be so helpful and informative! Happy Admin Assistants week to all the Admins out there!

  143. Janie Eller
     

    You’re right! It is tough deciding which one I’m most looking forward to! I’ve gotta be honest, I’m looking most forward to winning some plane tickets or hotel nights somewhere. :-) We’ve worked hard Ninjas! We deserve a few gifts! :-)
    Great job to us all!

  150. Cheyenne Lopez
     

    Can’t wait to reunite with fellow Ninjas!! We get a celebration in OUR honor about once a year, can’t believe it’s already been that long. Thanks to the Office Ninja crew, we get to relax, experience a party in full gear, collecting ideas and sharing our passion for this field. My favorite is the photo booth. Silly swag gear to show off our quirky inside :) See you lovely ninjas soon!

  151. Leslie S Parker

  157. Carolyn
     

    This week is always fun. Between hearing about the conference (wish there was a way to virtually attend), getting new ideas, and flash raffles, there’s always something to look forward to.

  158. Selena Winchell
     

    Can’t think of a better way to celebrate our day! Looking forward to meeting all the awesome ninjas!

  159. Lorie Cornick

  163. Jennifer Maitland
     

    I am looking forward to celebrating all of my hard work along with all of the other awesome Office Ninjas. I am also looking forward to the raffles and most of all the Admin Bash!! It is my first year attending and I can’t wait!!! :)

  170. Deborah Zotian
     

    Looking forward to seeing how everyone else celebrates. Our office does nothing. It’s great to see the offices that take their Admins/OMs seriously as professionals.

      We hope our celebrations can inspire your office, but know your efforts don’t go unnoticed. Party it up with fellow Ninjas who get it.

  171. Kelly Olsakovsky
     

    My favorite part of APW with Office Ninjas is the All-Star bios. I love reading about what rock-star admins do, and how I can incorporate their ideas in my own routines.

  172. Leah
     

    I’ve looked forward to this week since I was in high school. In Puerto Rico, Secretaries Week (as it was call back in the 70’s) was awesome. It was all about US. Now days it’s different. It’s so “politically” correct. At my work it is Staff Week.

  173. S. Torres
     

    I’m looking forward to all the great and relevant content your team provides to our community!

  174. angie
     

    Thank you, it’s wonderful that someone still cares and appreciates admins!!

  175. Sheri
     

    So looking forward to Admin Week. Hope to win some cool stuff. Wish I could be there, but maybe next year! :)

  176. Josh L
     

    Really looking forward to Admin Week!

  177. Barbara Coetzer
     

    I strongly believe that being an Office Administrative Professional is one of the most satisfying roles one can have. Ensuring that the person you are employed to “take care of” is always on time with absolutely everything they do and need to attend is crucial. Also being given the responsibility that comes with the role which is ever changing, gives a feeling of being appreciated (the kind words do help:). I might not be able to attend the bash and some of the other exciting things being planned as I live in New Zealand, but just being given the opportunity to being part of everything is a great feeling!

      International Ninja—nice. We’ll promise to send #AdminBash party vibes your way if you promise to treat yourself for all your hard work.

  178. Marisol
     

    I’m looking forward to going on the first ever Admin Team outing to… well, the Office Ninja Admin Bash, of course! It’s a double-whammy of new experiences. Our team is really looking forward to a day of bonding, learning, growing, noshing, drinking, dancing… the list goes on and on! Thank you, Office Ninja team- we can’t wait!

    1. OfficeNinjas

      We’re particularly excited to provide the opportunity to grow and nosh. See you there, Marisol!

  179. Sarahy Calderon
     

    Looking forward to celebrating admin week. This will be a 1st for me :)

  180. Loretta A.
     

    I wish I could attend the admin bash in person. I’m looking forward to the flash raffles and other surprises during the week.

  181. HawaiianEA
     

    Celebrating in-person and vicariously with all the admins of the world how gratifying and valuable it is to be an administrative professional !!!

  182. Peggy O'Hara

  187. Amber M.
     

    Looking forward to the AdminBash, for sure! Just recently found OfficeNinjas and I’ve been telling all my fellow admins about it!

  188. Gina Liston-Forrester

  194. Diane
     

    Looking forward to seeing if the nudge I made to the managers results in fun things for my fellow Admins.

  199. Sharon McPherson
     

    Look forward to celebrating ourselves and our chosen profession!

  200. Carolyn M
     

    It’s the time of year ALL our staff at least stops in to the admins and pays us all a well-earned word of appreciation. We know they appreciate our work all year, but telling us is very affirming (affirming – such a nicer way of saying “it’s good to do.”)

    1. OfficeNinjas
      author

      We concur (a nicer way of say, “Heck yea, it is!”). So glad you’re getting the recognition you deserve, Carolyn!

  201. Alice H
     

    I always look forward to the fun things you guys plan for Admin Week. Thanks! :D (I love how it’s a week and not just a day)

  202. Ann Dahlke
     

    I’m looking forward to attending a local IAAP event for administrative professionals.

  203. Patricia
     

    I’m looking forward to connect with other Ninjas at AdminBash!

  204. Michael Herrington
     

    Unfortunately I won’t be able to attend in person, I’ll be with you in spirit!

  205. Lisa Ryan
     

    I am proud to be an Office Ninja! It is nice to celebrate all of us “behind the scenes” Ninjas that wear so many hats on any given day. Being spoiled with prizes is nice too!

    1. OfficeNinjas

      Spoiling Ninjas is our specialty :)

  206. Jessy O
     

    Looking forward to celebrating all admins with my work BFFs!

  207. Linda Lenceski
     

    I am looking forward to it all. We have to celebrate ourselves as much as possible and why not enjoy the entire week. My fellow NINJAS in my office enjoy this time as much as I do.

  208. Brenda Jones
     

    It is awesome to be recognized for being the unsung everyday hero. I appreciate the tips, tricks and tools offered by Office Ninjas.

  209. Christy
     

    I am looking forward to Admin Week for all the Hip – Hip – Hooray’s that my work colleagues give me and I know that they truly appreciate all of my hard work.

  210. Mary M.

  225. FR
     

    Thanks for all your efforts! It’s nice to feel appreciated :)

  226. Emily
     

    The prizes and epic memories you create every year are phenomenal. But, I think what I like the most are the moments when people say, “What is OfficeNinjas?” or “What is Admin Week?” and now we have an utterly amazing platform to share with people and expand awareness of this career field. It’s exciting! :)

  227. Carmen H.
     

    I can’t wait to recognize fellow ninjas in the field and everything we all do!

  228. Jessica E.
     

    Thanks so much for making all of us organizers feel so important! It’s great to be recognized. I’m looking forward to hearing more about the event!

  229. Katy
     

    I am excited to see old friends and make new ones at Admin Bash!

  230. Jean Weaver, CAP-OM
     

    I love the positive energy generated by APW! I, too, wish Admin Bash was closer — or scheduled next to a conference that would help justify a trip across the country.

  231. Joyce Lobmaster
     

    You make it more cool to be an Admin… I mean Office Ninja!! :)

  232. Tammi Fletcher
     

    Celebrating Office Ninjas around the world!!!

  233. Rhonda Ostwald
     

    It’s fun to see how everyone celebrates the admins around the country. So thankful they had the insight years ago to set up a special day/week for us.

  234. Tanya King
     

    Wish I could attend the AdminBash – y’all should come to Nashville!

  235. Donna Trickett
     

    I’m looking forward to reading the Q&As from the All-Stars and incorporating some of their ideas and methodologies at our site. The prizes sound amazing! I hope I’m lucky enough to win one!

    I always find something new and interesting on this blog. We are currently working on our culture and have found some great ideas on how to implement.

    This is my first year of seeing this event online. Looks like a lot of leg work and hard work on your part. Thank you for showing Admin professionals they are a special part of the company team.

  253. Melissa Dill
     

    I’m looking forward getting to celebrate all the hard work that all admins do!

  254. Teresa Thomas
     

    The whole week is a blast, but I absolutely LOVE having a good excuse to brag about my amazing co-admins and to encourage everyone else to remember/speak up about how much better our admins make their lives.
