A Taste of The IHRSA Institute Experience



The course of study was developed over many years based on feedback from IHRSA members, attendees, and faculty. An Advisory Group, consisting of industry leaders, has guided the development of the curriculum. Courses are taught by industry experts, many of whom serve as college faculty, along with faculty from UNC. Classes are meant to be interactive so you gain knowledge not only from the teachers but also from your fellow club operators.



The Institute starts with a fun opening session that will allow you to learn from, and about, your fellow attendees. Meals, roundtables, and social activities throughout the event are structured to facilitate the exchange of best practices and inspiration and build relationships that last long after the Institute ends.



The Rizzo Center features state-of-the-art meeting space along with a boutique style hotel specifically designed with the business traveler in mind. Amenities include fitness facilities, a pool complex with outdoor lounge areas, a UNC-themed sports bar, guest pantries stocked with beverages and snacks, laundry rooms, and top-of-the-line technology offerings.



"The Institute will provide you with more than an education. It will challenge you to go deep, to challenge the status quo, to redefine your definition of success and what it means for you, your team, and your facility. The Institute is the path to become the leader you’ve always wanted to be."
