What’s Admingling?

Networking for Admins and Workplace Operators in San Francisco, CA

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: Expanding Your Role

Ninjas must identify what they need to stay relevant — and advocate for it.

Want to see Darwin’s theory in action? Keep an eye on your company’s org chart. The message is simple: adapt, evolve, and succeed. As the workplace changes, a Ninja must continually evaluate their role, skill set, and the unique value they bring to the table.

You sense that change is on the horizon — maybe you’re already seeing it play out at your company. In this month’s Admingling event, we’ll discuss how Ninjas can stay ahead of the curve and gain the skills needed to remain competitive and in-demand.


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.

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.

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.

Past Admingling Events

November 6, 2018

The Goal Standard

Ninjas took a deep dive into the topic of goal tracking in the artful, unique, and always unexpected Hotel Zeppelin while enjoying delicious local fare from its onsite restaurant, Rambler. Huge thanks to co-hosts Alex Byrne and Michelle Cantillo for their fearless leadership and to Caviar for Teams for sharing their game-changing services! See the the night for yourself with these gorgeous shots from Oh Snap! Visuals.

Developing Habits and Crushing Goals

Habit hacking and long-term goals aren’t typical happy hour fodder. But, then again, Admingling isn’t a typical networking meet-up. Case in point: our sold-out event at Breather’s 459 Clementina St location. Ninjas went deep (and got real) under the expert guidance of veteran co-hosts Jennifer Sharma and Crystal Le. And our partners at Homegrown, Brewpublik, Delta, and Oh Snap Visuals kept energy levels high with seemingly endless food, drinks, swag, and Ninja appreciation. Check out the photo album.

Turning Toward Tech in 2018

There’s nothing like swapping stories and building camaraderie with fellow Ninjas, and that’s exactly how San Francisco admins spent the night. S/O to Hotel Zelos San Francisco for the beautiful event space and delicious food + drinks, Oh Snap Booth Co. for event photography and BOOM! gif stand, and Studio Dental for showcasing their genius mobile dental office photo album.

August 3, 2017

Developmental Deep Dive

In partnership with Clorox, we hosted #AdminglingSF’s sold out event at ThirstyBear Organic Brewery. Ninjas dug into discussions about professional development and how to get support from leadership—all while enjoying tasty grub and great company. Browse through our photo album.

February 23, 2017

Productivity & Processes Hackathon

Ninjas focused on useful productivity tools to kill it in 2017. They covered processes to streamline inefficient or tedious tasks, benefiting the entire office while upping their stealth creds. Browse through our photo album.

November 9, 2016

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.

June 28, 2016

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.

March 30, 2016

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.


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?

We’re so happy you asked! Volunteers are essential; they make each event unique by bringing local perspective to the planning process. If you’re interested in being a volunteer, please complete this form.

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