You Can’t Spell DAMN AMAZING without ADMIN

April 24–28, 2017

The jig is up, Ninja. You make it look easy, but we know how much talent and hard work it takes to run an efficient, organized, and happy office. Your amazingness may go undetected for 51 weeks out of the year, but we’re planning five solid days of appreciation, celebration, gifts, and giveaways.

Get ready to be recognized.


We lit the Admin Week fuse in 2015—and the explosion of awesome has only gotten better each year. Nowadays, it’s the biggest—and coolest—celebration of office managers, executive assistants, and administrative maestros around the globe. It’s our third year at it, so you better believe we’re going bigger and better!

Football has Joe Montana. Basketball has Jordan and LeBron. But OfficeNinjas has Shaffer, Bradley, Glesener, Pillatsch, and Powley.

Now in its third year, OfficeNinjas All-Stars is a global, online search for the best and brightest Ninjas. We know all Ninjas kick ass on a daily basis, but All-Stars set the bar higher with their creative problem solving, passion for efficiency, and can-do attitudes. We start our search by asking managers and colleagues to nominate hardworking Ninjas who make life better. From those nominations, we choose five shining examples of our community.

In the end, the legendary All-Stars are showered with praise—plus tons of bragging rights and company recognition. We’ll award each All-Star with a professional photo shoot, an editorial feature on, and a sweet prize package.

We throw killer events throughout the year—but when it comes to Admin Bash, we pull out all the stops.

Putting 350+ Ninjas under the same roof is what magic is made of, and with dozens flying in to attend, you know it’s for more than networking. The greatness starts with an unexpected venue, refreshing entertainment and activities, and delicious food and drinks. Then, we hand-pick sponsors to help make it rain with high-quality gifts for every Ninja in attendance (our goody bags and raffle prizes are the stuff of legend) to show you exactly how appreciated you are.

Bay Area Ninjas—mark your calendars. Not local? We can’t think of a better reason to visit San Francisco! Use our handy “permission slip” to get your manager on board. If you need extra swaying, this recap of 2016’s Admin Bash should do the trick.

Don’t miss a single moment of all things #AdminWeek!


Office Ninjas

Office Managers, Receptionists, Executive Assistants, Operations Gurus, Culture Coordinators, and Jacks and Jills of all trades from companies like Amazon, Southwest Airlines, and Slack.


Entire teams banding together to celebrate their admins—like last year’s Project Aura Department from Google, who warmed our hearts when they rallied across the office to get their Ninja nominated.

Sponsors & Partners

Companies across 15 product and service categories, like travel, office supplies, snacks, and software. These companies celebrate Ninjas—and they genuinely care about the profession. Does this sound like your company? Let’s chat!

Admin Groups & Orgs

Ninjas of other admin groups like Admin Awards, IAAP, and The PVA join in too. It’s one big ol’ Ninja family! If you lead an admin group/organization and want to be part of the Admin Week festivities, we got you hooked up here!


We need your help to make sure every Ninja, employer, company, vendor, and media outlet knows about #AdminWeek. Admins are often under-recognized for their administrative badassery—some companies don’t even know Admin Day exists!

Let’s build awareness, increase visibility, and get the recognition the profession deserves! To make the process as easy as possible, we put together an extensive guide that includes 7 ways you can help spread the word, from pre-written email templates to custom social media graphics. And you’ll get OfficeNinjas goodies for helping, too! You can also reach out to [email protected] if you have other ideas.
