2024 Human Resources Intensive

Sunday, June 23, 2024 to Tuesday, June 25, 2024

Event Details

Back by popular demand! This program provides collaboration opportunities and valuable sessions specifically designed for HR professionals in independent schools.

Human resources should be designed to help achieve the goals and business objectives of an organization, and a school is no exception. The independent school HR professional does this through excellent communications and use of efficient processes, while supporting a sustainable information security and privacy strategy. Understanding the fundamentals of human resources in an independent school will be the focus of this year’s Intensive. This will add value, assist in making your school more competitive, and allow you to become a strategic partner.

Build your own skills and that of your team while you collaborate and share with your peers, leaving with valuable takeaways to assist you in the daily tasks that are critical to the success of your school.




  • Human Resources Directors and Managers
  • Business Officers and other roles with HR responsibilities
  • Those in an HR role who are new to independent schools

Here's what past attendees have said...

"These conferences are by far the best that I have ever attended. The small size and the relevant topics make the time away from the office well worth the time."

"I love that it is HR that is specific to what we do. It's hard to find info directly related to independent schools!"

"It was specific and had takeaways that can be implemented right away."
