Editor’s Note: For Admin Week 2019, we pulled back the curtain on how you achieve the impossible. A Ninja’s work isn’t an illusion or trickery. It’s not magic. It’s a phenomenon. See highlights from our week-long celebration!
Saving the date and scheduling a to-do are completely different things.
When a Save the Date arrives on embossed stationery, you get an instant snippet of the exciting things around the corner. Scheduling a to-do, on the other hand, is just filling the calendar.
While we don’t have fancy postcards to mail you for this particular notice, we do have some exciting things in store for Admin Week 2017! And if we’re being technical, you actually need to save a few dates—the show starts April 24 and runs through April 28 (because a single day of fun and appreciation simply doesn’t do you justice).
We lit the Admin Week fuse in 2015—and the explosion of awesome has only gotten bigger each year. Nowadays, it’s the biggest—and coolest—celebration of office managers, executive assistants, administrative maestros, and the like, around the globe.
Now, we love surprises, and we’ve got plenty up our sleeves for next year. But there are a few tried-and-true components of Admin Week we wouldn’t dare forego. Wondering what those are?
Online Casting Call: OfficeNinjas All-Stars
OfficeNinjas All-Stars is our global search for the best and brightest Ninjas. Though we know all Office Ninjas kick ass on a daily basis, All-Stars raise the bar with their creative problem solving, passion for efficiency, and can-do attitudes.
We ask managers and colleagues to nominate hardworking Ninjas who make their lives better. From those nominations, we choose five shining examples of our community.
In the end, the legendary All-Stars are showered with praise—plus we’ll gift them with a professional photo shoot, a featured article on OfficeNinjas.com, and an incredible prize package.
Online Flash Raffle: Five Days of Incredible Giveaways
Every day of Admin Week, three Ninjas will win prizes from one of our generous partners.
We announce the prize details, open the raffle, and pick the winners all in one day. Let’s face it, the raffle is only as good as the prizes—but that’s why we pride ourselves on getting you GOOD STUFF.
5th Annual Admin Bash in SF: Ninja Love on April 26, 2017
Not to swing our own nunchucks, but we know how to throw a party.
The Admin Bash has all the networking of a first-class corporate event … but so. much. more. It all starts with a stunning venue in San Francisco, delicious food and killer cocktails, a massage lounge, over $10,000 in raffle prizes, and our legendary swag bag.
We strongly suggest you come party with us IRL and see what it’s like to network (and cut loose) with hundreds of like-minded Ninjas from all industries and backgrounds.
We Need Your Help!
We’ll be sharing more details in the coming weeks, but first, we need your help to make sure every Ninja, employer, company, vendor, and media outlet you can think of knows about #AdminWeek. Some companies don’t even know that Admin Day exists!
Let’s build awareness, increase visibility, and get the recognition the profession deserves! To make the process as easy as possible, we put together an extensive guide that includes 8 ways you can help spread the word, from pre-written email templates to custom social media graphics. And you’ll get OfficeNinjas goodies for helping, too! You can also reach out to email@example.com if you have other ideas.
