Health and safety protocols

We are planning to gather in person. However, Miller Management and Consulting Group will be closely monitoring conditions and make adjustments should things change. The hotel takes every precaution to ensure the highest standards in health and safety protocols (see them here All meeting rooms will be set with a level of social distancing in mind, and as of today, masks are required for all attendees at all times while indoors (except while eating), regardless of vaccination status.


The curriculum is being finalized. There will be several subject matter expert guest speakers and they are assembling a great team of core and guest trainers.

Please be sure to check the schedule posted online for Academy start and finish times and plan your travel accordingly. You must be present for all sessions to earn your certificate for all 20 hours/10 points.


The recently renovated Hayes Mansion is located at 200 Edenvale Ave., San Jose, CA. Guest rooms are comfortable with a host of amenities. Our session training rooms are equally inviting and comfortable. Please note the hotel no longer operates an airport shuttle so you will need to make those arrangements on your own.
