A Night of Networking & Learning!

New ANR Date Pic.png

Villanova HRD is turning 40!

Join us for a night of networking, learning & celebration!

SEPTEMBER 17, 2020 



"The Surprising Science of Meetings"

 The Inn at Villanova | 601 County Line Road

We could never have known when we set out to plan the 40th celebration for the program that the world would be facing an unprecedented and uncertain time.  We are hopeful by the Fall we will be able to gather with our HR community, alumni, and students again!

We are grateful to Steven Rogelberg, our Keynote Speaker, for his flexibility and we are excited he is able to join us in September.  We look forward to seeing everyone in September (hopefully sooner) for the 2020 Networking Reception! Until then, stay positive, stay healthy, GO NOVA!
