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!
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.
Admingling is just the beginning! OfficeNinjas offers Seattle admins resources, opportunities for career growth and recognition, and city-specific updates. Stay in the loop!

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 are chosen with local perspective. Attendees share ideas, trade tips, and walk away with actionable solutions and a stack of new professional contacts.
GOT Q'S? WE GOT A'S
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 (no more than $15) 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).
We love working alongside companies that share our vision of uniting, educating, and celebrating the admin profession. Our ideal partner is interested in more than promoting their services—they want to have an authentic dialogue with the OfficeNinjas community. Being part of something meaningful is part of the sponsorship package.
If this sounds like your ideal partnership—and you think your services could truly benefit Ninjas—we want to hear from you. Apply to be an Admingling sponsor.
