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!
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!
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.
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

The Goal Standard
When Seattle gives you sunshine, you take Admingling outside! First & Bell’s stunning rooftop patio was the perfect setting for a relaxed yet thought-provoking discussion on goals—how to set, track, and get credit for achieving them. Our friends at Caviar coordinated a knockout spread, VIBE kept the beverages flowing, and the raffle prizes from Caviar, TripActions, and Delta were Un. Be. Lievable. Check out the photo album for all the action!

Hacking Habits and Crushing Goals
A little rain didn’t stop Ninjas from filling Seattle’s Marian Built Loft with good vibes and lively discussion. Ninjas teamed up to evaluate their habits, The Catering Company dished out seasonal eats, and Bevi kept us hydrated (and unveiled their new countertop model!) Guests left with audacious (but totally crushable) goals and delicious-smelling gift bags from Yuzu Soap. Take a look at the photo album!

Developmental Deep Dive
As Executive Assistant Michael C. said, “AdminglingSEA was ridiculously awesome and advantageous”. Seattle Ninjas gathered at Zoe Events to talk shop about career development and how they could make a difference for Seattle’s top companies, while also enjoying goodies from Clorox.

Cozy Career Chats
Seattle Ninjas connected, shared ideas, and collaborated on solutions at this inaugural event. They discussed the challenges of the ever-evolving admin role and provided a variety of valuable perspectives—all with an amazing energy! Browse photos of the sold-out evening.
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.
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.
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.
Unfortunately, we're unable to offer refunds for high-demand events like Admingling. Mark that date with a Sharpie, and count on coming!
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).
