Who We are

Often referred to as the ‘Academy Awards for Admins‘, the Admin Awards is the first and only public recognition program of its kind in the country that focuses specifically on recognizing and rewarding the achievements, dedication and importance of Administrative Professionals. The Admin Awards currently operates in ten cities across the U.S. including Boston, Chicago, Dallas / Fort Worth, Denver, Houston, Pacific Northwest, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Silicon Valley and Washington D.C.

The Admin Awards offers nine distinct award categories, including the program’s most prestigious award, The Colleen Barrett Award for Administrative Excellence which elevates the professional who embodies the “spirit” and proficiency of nationally renowned former secretary, Colleen Barrett, now President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines.
