What’s Admingling?

Networking for Admins and Workplace Operators in New York City, NY

Powered by collective intelligence, OfficeNinjas’ Admingling events provide admin pros and workplace operators with the time, space, and inspiration to grow their networks and level up their careers. Interesting venues, unexpected discussion topics, and delicious food and drinks are all part of Admingling’s secret sauce, but Ninjas are the key ingredient.

Want to make connections, discuss challenges, and brainstorm new ideas with a gang that gets it? Sign up for event updates today.

This Quarter’s Theme: Culture Evolution

Ninjas are uniquely positioned to nurture and evolve company culture.

Company culture isn’t so easily defined, but it’s woven into everything an organization does. And although we tend to see culture as determined by those at the top — truth is, every employee can foster a sense of belonging in the workplace.

As the backbone of an organization, Ninjas already understand the importance of having a strong company culture, but it's not always obvious what steps to take. In this month’s Admingling, we’ll discuss ways Ninjas can help get their office aligned around the company’s cultural vision.

Register Here, Ninja

Unlike our larger events, Adminglings are meant to be intimate in size. We cap the guest list to ensure everyone has the opportunity to speak up and be heard. Reserve your ticket before we sell out!

Need to convince your boss? Use this handy email template.

IMPORTANT! This event is exclusively for career admins (office managers, executive assistants, and operations pros). Each registration will be verified, and all non-admin signups will be automatically refunded.

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.

Expanding Your Role

With Healthy Happy Hour beverages in hand, New York Ninjas brainstormed strategic ways to expand their roles and take on new responsibilities in the evolving workplace. Ninja Hosts Danielle and Ally led a sold-out room through thoughtful discussion, laid back networking, and enticing raffle drawings. Take a peek at the photos!

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!

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.

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.

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, 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. We promise it will be the highlight of your week!

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).

What’s the dress code?

There is no dress code. Many Ninjas come straight from work, and tend to be dressed work-casual as a result. Just make sure you're comfortable!

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?
