About Admingling Events

OfficeNinjas’ Admingling events arm Ninjas with the power of collective intelligence through networking with local admins in a lively environment while sharing challenges, brainstorming new ideas, and swapping solutions. Of course, it wouldn’t be an OfficeNinjas event without great food, tasty libations, and a quirky venue. That’s the secret sauce to Admingling: blending the best of a networking event with authentic interactions and a slight party vibe.

To keep the Admingling calendar full, we depend on local volunteers. Want in on the action? Learn more and apply here!

Testimonials

Admingling was so much fun! It was wrapped up in a nice little package … the food, laughter, networking and open forum — all covered in two short hours. I went in knowing no-one and came out feeling like I had known these Ninjas forever. It’s nice to know what’s going on outside the four walls we’re in everyday. Connecting with other admins is priceless in so many ways!

Dana L.
Executive Assistant

So excited to be a part of this group of phenomenal Office Ninjas supporting each other!! It’s a tremendous resource (and a lot of fun) for any executive assistant, office manager, or admin. Thanks for creating this group and making us admins — who often feel alone or on an island — feel valued and supported.

Office Manager

Admingling Tips

Maximize your Admingling experience with these simple tips!

1. Don’t forget to put the “mingling” in Admingling! Introduce yourself, swap business cards, and interact with each person in the room. 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.

2. Your fellow Ninjas are your 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 work life? Speak up, ask questions, and trade tips.

3. Cash in on peer-to-peer facetime. So many Ninjas work in a department of one, making peer support hard to find. Admingling is your chance to open up and share your questions, ideas, or concerns. You’ll gain new perspectives through the collective power of the group.

Past Admingling Events

October 25, 2018

The Goal Standard

Admingling NYC had it all: a packed space buzzing with Ninja energy, stimulating group discussions, tasty food and wine, and some pretty impressive prizes from our generous sponsors. One lucky Ninja walked away with a $100 Caviar credit, two Ninjas received $50 Daily Harvest gift cards, and another Ninja scored a one-night getaway from Furnished Quarters. (And all received strict instructions NOT to share their prizes with the office!) Browse the photo album!

Developing Habits and Crushing Goals

New York Ninjas brought their Admingling A-game to this sold-out event, filling Etcetera Etcetera’s cabaret room with energy, ideas, and fresh faces—nearly 50% of attendees were new to OfficeNinjas! While veteran hosts Crystal Le and Rebecca Bellamy led the discussion on goal-setting and habit-hacking, our friends at SixPlus, TripActions, Oh My Green, and Pilot dialed up the appreciation factor with some quality swag and killer raffle prizes. Check out the photo album!

Turning Toward Tech in 2018

We were blown away at AdminglingNYC—the budding relationships formed, the information exchanged, and the incredible conversations generated. Breather provided the collaborative space and delicious eats, Corporate Essentials kept us happy with fresh and healthy snacks, and Bevi provided custom fizzy drinks. Browse the photo album.

Developmental Deep Dive

#AdminglingNYC is only as good as the Ninjas who attend, and it’s safe to say we had an admazing evening. The topic was Professional Development and there was no shortage of good conversations. Thanks to Le Pain Quotidien for providing an interactive, communal space and delicious eats + drinks! Browse the photo album.

Cracking Company Culture

New York Ninjas munched on food fit for a “grown-up kids party” while discussing the incredible impact Ninjas can have on coworkers—and the entire company culture—just by engaging in simple acts every day. Check out the photo album!

Productivity & Big City Collaboration

Productivity was the word of the night, and NYC Ninjas had lots to say about it. They talked tech tools for helping the entire office (including themselves) work smarter AND harder. Check out these pics of productivity planning in action.

Early Adopters

Admingling’s first event in NYC was totally chill, with an open discussion about better connecting the city’s admin community. Ninjas dished on topics they’re curious about for future meetups and cleaned their plates to boot. Browse through our photo album.

What's Admingling?

More structured than a happy hour but more social than a workshop, an Admingling event harnesses the power of our community’s collective intelligence. Every after-work event is unique; we work with Ninjas in each host city to pick a space that’s both comfortable and inspiring. Everything from the discussion topics to the cocktails is chosen with local perspective. Attendees share ideas, trade tips, and walk away with actionable solutions and a stack of new professional contacts.

FAQ

Do I have to be an Office Ninja to attend?

Yes! We designed Admingling specifically for Office Ninjas (e.g. executive assistants, office managers, operations managers, admins). If you don’t fall into any of those categories, sign up for our newsletter or consider sponsoring an event.

Will I meet other people in the same role and industry as me?

Admingling events connect you to administrative professionals across all industries and levels of experience. You’re bound to have things in common with other guests, but our events are known for their diversity.

What are the costs?

Each city’s inaugural event is free. Subsequent Admingling events will have a small admission fee to help cover basic event expenses including insurance, food, and printouts.

What's the refund policy?

Unfortunately, we're unable to offer refunds for high-demand events like Admingling. Mark that date with a Sharpie, and count on coming!

I’d like to bring my whole office crew. Can I sign up as a group?

Admingling is the perfect after-hours event for you and your Ninja squad. Each member of your party must sign up separately (and be quick — we have a first-come, first-serve policy).

How often do Admingling events happen?

Admingling is held on a quarterly basis in established cities. Volunteer Event Organizers make these events possible and help us scout out new territories for Admingling. Want to join the team? Learn more, and apply here.

How can I volunteer?
