9 Benefits of Attending an Administrative Conference as a Team

administrative_assistant_conference

There are several benefits to attending an administrative conference with several peers from your organization. Here are just a few:

  • You and your peers are learning together and hearing the same information. Most likely you and your peers will attend the same session. When you see the same presenter, you can talk about what you heard, how to apply it, and also share your unique perspective of what you gained.

  • You may attend a different session. If the administrative conference offers breakout sessions, you can attend one session and your peer can attend another session. Then you can share with each other what you learned.
  • There is strength in unity. When several of you have heard the same tactics or strategies, it is easier to implement them when you return to the office.
  • Group attendance is more cost effective. Most administrative conferences offer group discounts. You can also share a room and ground transportation with a coworker.
  • Builds camaraderie and friendship (outside the office) which leads to better working together in the office.
  • Enables greater knowledge absorption. Before attending the conference, the team can discuss a strategy for the event.
  • Share notes.
  • Support is empowering. Attending a conference by yourself can be intimidating.
  • There is power in different generations attending. Mixing new or younger generational assistants with seasoned or tenured assistants is a powerful combination. Each brings a different perspective and gift to the “party.”

We have been fortunate at Office Dynamics, that several companies send a group of assistants to our administrative conference. It is wonderful to see the energy generated from group attendance.
