2019 Human Resources Intensive

Back by popular demand! The only one of its kind, 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. 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.

Past Attendee Testimonials
"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."
"The small size of the group allows attendees to not just network but develop long term connections and relationships. It also provides for a better learning experience than a large conference with the varied breakout sessions."
