Regional Workshops

ARC offers customized in-person regional workshops and events throughout the year. We work with allied regional associations to develop and lead programs that support the ongoing work of auxiliary program professionals. Workshop content can include:

  • Current best practices
  • Trends in auxiliary programming
  • Specific program area focus (ie. summer, after school, enrichment, etc.)
  • Facilitated discussion of current challenges and opportunities

Interested individuals, schools, or associations should contact SPARC directly to discuss the creation of a regional workshop in your area. Please email

Annual regional workshops include:

  • Summer Summit (Sidwell Friends School, Washington, DC)
    Summer Summit brings together Auxiliary and Summer Programs staff each year for a day of workshops and roundtable sessions.  Join us in Washington, DC for a great opportunity to learn, network with colleagues and meet new friends. (December 2023) 

  • SoCal Summer and Auxiliary Leaders (Harvard-Westlake School, Studio City, CA)
    Intended for directors and leaders working in auxiliary programs at independent schools, this workshop is a time to connect and learn with your colleagues. (December 2023)
