Admin Pro Forum 2022

The premier skill-building event for today's trailblazing admins

Today’s admins are being asked to do more than ever before—and often given less to do it with. But with adversity comes the opportunity to rise to the top of your profession.

Only by sharpening your talents in office administration, project management, office technology and people skills can you expect to satisfy (and EXCEED) your executive’s expectations.

Mark your calendar now for the Admin Pro Forum on Oct. 19-20! The Forum is well known for providing the perfect mix of skills training and feature presentations from giants of the admin training world. You’ll improve your skills, develop new ones and return to the office energized.

This fall, Admin Pro Forum remains virtual because so many of you told us you appreciate the wonderful flexibility of the online format. We’ll once again bring the trainers and timely topics to your screen so you can easily blend the conference into your workday. Also, all the video sessions and conference materials will be available for download, so you can keep honing your skills long after the conference has ended.
