Pasadena, CA (PRWEB) October 16, 2013
The California Association of Postsecondary Private Schools (CAPPS) recently hosted motivational speaker Scott Greenberg to give the opening keynote to members at their annual meeting at the Langhman Huntington Hotel in Pasadena, CA. The event was attended by 200 private postsecondary school owners and managers
Greenberg’s presentation was entitled, “Survival of the Finest: Thriving During Times of Change and Adversity.” The speech focused on ways to adapt to change while staying committed to providing high quality education programs.
The private postsecondary education sector has been hit hard by the economy over the last few years, which has impacted schools’ ability to recruit students and provide job placement after graduation. These institutions must also comply with thousands of regulations imposed by multiple agencies who oversee and certify for-profit schools.
“Private higher education has been going through tough times,” say Greenberg. “CAPPS members are passionate about their work, but they’re also under tremendous stress.” Greenberg’s program provided ideas for resilience and stress management. He also discussed the importance of focusing on service to students.
CAPPS serves its 300 member schools by providing legislative representation, PAC fundraising and events, resources and training. Each year they host a three-day conference for membership.
