Developmental Deep Dive

No one embodies a team player better than a Ninja, which means you deserve some MVP spotlight! This quarter’s Admingling theme focuses on your development—so you and fellow admins will compare stories and ideas on career advancement and continued learning (no pop quizzes required). We’ll also dig into discussions about the future of the admin role, how to rise to the position’s ever-changing challenges, and how to make yourself an invaluable part of the team.

WORD ON THE STREET

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!

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.

ADMINGLING TIPS

To ensure you get the most from your Admingling experience, we've put together a few quick tips.

1. Remember the “mingling” in Admingling! Introduce yourself to new people, share stories, and make Ninja friends. Your community wants to learn about you—the more you put into networking, the more you’ll get out.

2. Consider the Ninjas you’ll meet as resources. Some of you work at startups, some at large firms. No matter how you spin it, swapping tips and tools is valuable info for everyone involved.

3. No one understands your challenges better than fellow peers. By opening up and sharing your questions, ideas, or concerns you’ll gain new perspectives through the collective power of the group.

REGISTER HERE, NINJA

Unlike our larger shindigs, Adminglings are meant to be intimate in size. Reserve your ticket before we run out!

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

More Love, Less Hate

Ninjas embraced a venting session regarding their love/hate relationship with to-do lists. But in typical ninja fashion, they prioritized action and accountability, sharing ideas for doing more of what they love—and less of what they don’t. Browse through our photo album.

Building Influence

Mastering the mindful ‘no’ and positioning yourself as a strategic decision-maker is a difficult feat. This event dove into essential steps to contribute as more than a yes-Ninja while also building influencer-like skills. Browse through our photo album.

Beta Adminglers

This invite-only group tested the Admingling model by contributing potential topics for future events, sharing organizational suggestions, and brainstorming ways to keep the fun alive. Carlo Iyog hosted—and treated Ninjas to build-your-own ramen bowls.

WHAT'S ADMINGLING?!

OfficeNinjas’ quarterly 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. Join us and tap into your admin community’s collective wisdom!

GOT Q'S? WE GOT A'S

Do I have to be an admin to attend?

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

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

You will, but that’s just the start. These events connect you to administrative professionals across all industries and levels of experience. You’re bound to meet someone similar to you, but the sky’s the limit in terms of potential contacts.

How can I volunteer?

Volunteers make us swoon. That's what makes these events so unique, enabling that local focus we’re so proud of. If you’re interested in being a volunteer, please complete this form.

What are the costs?

Each city’s inaugural event is free. Subsequent Admingling events will have a small admission fee (no more than $15) to help cover basic event expenses, including insurance, signage, swag, etc.

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?

Office Ninjas who mingle together stay together. We love that you’re involving your co-Ninjas, but make note of our first-come, first-serve basis. We ask each Ninja to sign up separately, but this is a great use for the “reply all” button. And you could totally host a sign-up party as a group.

How often do Admingling events happen?

Admingling is held on a quarterly basis in established cities. To keep the Admingling calendar full, we depend on a volunteer Events Crew to keep events coming and introduce new territories. Want in on that action? Learn more and apply here.

I'd like to sponsor Admingling! How do I sign up?

We love making friends with companies that share our vision of uniting, educating, and celebrating the admin profession. Being part of something meaningful is part of the sponsorship package. Our ideal partner goes beyond promoting their services—they want to have an authentic dialogue with the OfficeNinjas community. Because of this, it’s important that we choose the right partners. If this sounds like your ideal partnership—and think your services could truly benefit Ninjas—we want to hear from you. Apply to be an Admingling sponsor.
