Leadership Institute



Why Attend The Leadership Institute 

This program is created by your peers in NWAIS leadership roles to support the work of experienced and aspiring leaders. The program includes time to reflect on the year's successes and challenges, build a new skill set and consider how it will be relevant in the coming year. Attendees have found it valuable to attend on their own or in cohorts from their school.

 

Who Should Attend: Assistant Heads, Division Heads, Deans, and those in and aspiring to Educational and Administrative Leadership Roles.

 

Tentative Agenda

Program will begin at 2:30pm, Monday, June 24, 2019 and conclude at 11:15am on Wednesday, June 26, 2019. 

 

Optional Conference Add-Ons

 

Lunch on Wednesday for Assistant Heads and Division Heads

In response to attendee requests, we have built on an additional 11:15-3:00pm meeting, specifically for Assistant Heads and Division Heads. This time will be structured and run by members of the planning committee and will provide you an opportunity to connect with colleagues around the unique challenges of these roles. Stay and enjoy this extended learning opportunity with other senior leaders.

Cost: $35  

 


 

Registration Information Will Be Added As It Becomes Available

 

 

Substitutions and Cancellations

Substitutions may be made any time prior to the conference. Written cancellations received by June 14, 2019 are eligible for a refund after a $75 cancellation fee. Cancellations received after June 14, 2019 are ineligible for any refund.

 

NWAIS is Going Paperless

All program materials will be provided electronically.

If there are pre-event materials, they will be sent to you via email about a week prior to the event. Please "BYOD" (bring your own device) to access them at the workshop or if you prefer, print out the digital materials and bring them with you. We will not have hard-copy packets for attendees on-site.

 

NWAIS may help cover travel costs

The NWAIS travel reimbursement policy is designed to reimburse candidate and accredited member schools for some travel costs. This policy applies to a school’s total travel expenses (not the cost of rooms and meals), no matter how many people the school sends to the workshop. If your school spends more than $150 dollars on travel for this event and is traveling a distance greater than 250 miles you will be reimbursed a percentage of your expenses.

Attendees of past Leadership Institutes were asked what they would tell those who have not attended before.  Here are a few of their responses.

 

The networking opportunity can't be beat. It's a very different feel and pace than most other conferences.

 

Excellent accommodations, excellent food, thoroughly planned, overall outstanding

 

I think it is great to attend with a group from your school - very valuable on many levels and worth the investment.

 

You will gain so much & you will also have the chance to fully integrate it into what you do. This conference is informative but invested in personal reflection and application. It is an outstanding opportunity to interact with peers. It is a most spectacular location to retreat professionally and personally.

 

This is an amazing opportunity to connect with colleagues from your own school and people who are your peers at other neighboring schools. This is a chance to not only offer your own ideas but to walk away with a better sense of where independent schools are heading.

 

It is an excellent opportunity to connect with colleagues, refresh after the school year, and dream big about the future of your school. I came away with both practical ideas I can implement right away, and more ambitious ideas for the leadership team at my school. I highly recommend it and hope to be back next year!
