OU’s Executive Director and Administrator Conference

The OU is excited to announce our Synagogue Executive Directors Conference will be held in parallel with the National School Executive Director Share Conference in Tampa/St. Petersburg Florida, From November 6-8 at the Hilton St. Petersburg Carillon Park.

 The program is designed to be a mix of networking opportunities that will allow Shul professionals to spend quality time with one another, while also offering important content and allowing each of us to step out of our comfort zone and grow as professionals. We are excited about our collaboration with the School Executive Director Conference which will allow our participants to benefit from a wide variety of additional resources and networking opportunities.
