Turning Toward Tech in 2018

Office Ninjas don’t keep up with the latest workplace technologies—they pioneer them! Starting this October, Admingling will focus on tech products and services, and the future of work. What products and apps will Ninjas need to succeed? How can we pioneer new technologies in the workplace? How will tech advancements affect the admin profession? Don’t miss out on what promises to be a dynamic discussion. Bring your ideas, as well as those burning questions you want answers to!

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!

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 shindigs, Adminglings are meant to be intimate in size. Snag your ticket before we sell 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.

PEEK AT PAST SILICON VALLEY EVENTS

August 10, 2017

Developmental Deep Dive

Silicon Valley Ninjas gathered at Bootup Ventures’ gorgeous venue to share professional development resources, stretch goal successes, and the value of a #bragsheet. Big thanks to 415 Catering for the tasty Hawaiian dinner, Office Libations for the open bar, Oh Snap! Booth Co for the fun boomerang booth, and Léon & George for providing each Ninja with a vibrant plant to take home. See AdminglingSV in action!

Productivity & Processes

When instant Ninja camaraderie meets an amazing venue like Testarossa Winery, magical things start to happen. The food was of the melt-in-your-mouth variety—especially if you’re a dessert fan—and the career development and goal hacking conversations were just as sweet. Browse through our photo album.

Early Adopters

This invite-only group of Ninjas tested Admingling to make sure it was amazing. An open discussion covered future event topics, frequency, and style—with a fancy breakfast at The Epiphany Hotel to top it all off.

WHAT'S ADMINGLING?!

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

Do I have to be an admin to attend?

Yes! We designed Admingling specifically for Office Ninjas (executive assistants, office managers, operations 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 (no more than $15) 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. 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?

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).

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?

We love working alongside companies that share our vision of uniting, educating, and celebrating the admin profession. Take a look at how we work with partners and complete our request form here.

NEW Event Series: Admingling!

"Admingling isn't your typical networking event. It's fun without making you uncomfortable; light but professional; and educational without changing the fun vibe to heavy and clunky." - Brenda, EA #BESTTIMEEVER!
