Last day to save on IHRSA Institute registration

Leadership, Strategic Planning, Financial Management, Staff Hiring & Training, Member Engagement & Retention... these are just a few of the topic areas that will be covered in the graduate-level education program the IHRSA Institute.

The Institute will feature small class sizes designed to facilitate interaction and foster long-term peer networking. Real-life examples and in-depth conversations with faculty and students—in the classroom and beyond—will immerse participants in the skills necessary to run a successful club. 

You can save if you register by March 25, 2014.

IHRSA Institute registration now open

You know the IHRSA Institute is back, as we announced in December. Now we have opened registration for the extremely popular event, Aug. 5-8 on the campus of the University of North Carolina. 

The Institute is three full days of graduate-level education led by expert faculty that provides a balanced curriculum covering every aspect of club management. There is outstanding peer networking and social opportunities thanks to the limited class sizes. 

There is a price break ending April 25, so make up your mind fast.
