NWAIS Round Tables

Free, community-led discussions for independent school professionals.

NWAIS Round Tables

Join your NWAIS colleagues for connection and collaboration in these free, community-led discussions. Round Tables are hosted by NWAIS, meet virtually through Zoom, and are open to all independent school professionals working in specific professional areas within the school.

2021-2022 Sessions and Meeting Dates

Round Tables meet monthly from 3:30 - 4:30pm Pacific Time. There is no requirement to sign up for a meeting in order to attend, but we do ask that you RSVP if you plan on making it. This allows our community facilitators to best prepare for each meeting. Click the link for the upcoming meeting date to RSVP.

Interested in Facilitating?

NWAIS Round Tables rely on community support to operate. Consider signing up to lead a session when you RSVP. Facilitators are asked to prepare a couple of discussion questions, or send our a conversation topic / pre-reading ahead of time. Participants will suggest topics they'd like to cover when they RSVP -- this will also be provided to a Round Table facilitator.

If you have questions about facilitating or about Round Tables in general, please contact Jami Sheets, Community Engagement and Events Coordinator, and jsheets@nwais.org.
