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.

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!

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?
