Who We are

The Admin Awards is the Administrative Profession’s highest honor, created nearly a decade ago by the daughter of a retired Executive Secretary. 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 nine cities across the U.S. including Boston, Chicago, Dallas / Fort Worth, Denver, Houston, Pacific Northwest, Philadelphia, San Francisco, and Silicon Valley.

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, President Emeritus of Southwest Airlines.
