Monday, July 15, 2024 - Wednesday, July 17, 2024 // 9-11 Tamuz 5784
Hosted at Golda Och Academy (West Orange, New Jersey.)

Join the 8th annual Senior Development Professionals Retreat hosted at Golda Och Academy in West Orange, New Jersey. This intentionally designed experience for senior development professions will provide the opportunity to network, collaborate and learn from one another in meaningful, thought-provoking ways. Deepen your connection to a community of colleagues with powerful learning and practical conversations. Together with peers from across North America, explore ideas that work and innovative approaches that you can bring back and apply to your own school and community.

In-person learning and networking is invaluable and amplifies the work of our schools and the field of day school fundraising. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to spend time together again this summer.

This program is open to veteran school-based development professionals, which are often categorized as professionals with 8 or more years of fundraising experience. If you are interested in the retreat but have fewer than 8 years of experience, please be in touch with Traci Reisberg.
