HOTEL RESERVATIONS:

You may make hotel reservations online or by calling 1-800-2CROWNE and asking for the SAIS rate. The discounted conference rate of $139 is available through December 27, 2017. As we expect the block to sell out, be sure to make your reservations early. Hotel check-in time is 3:00 PM. Check-out time is 12:00 PM.

Please note that SAIS is not using a housing bureau for room reservations. SAIS nor the hotel will call you and ask you to make reservations over the phone. If you receive a phone call saying you need to make reservations, it is a scam. Please make your reservations online or by calling the hotel directly.

PARKING:

The hotel offers complimentary self-parking.

DRESS CODE:

Business casual (erring on the side of casual) is always safe with us. We want you to be comfortable. Be sure to bring a jacket or sweater in case you find the meeting room chilly. We tend to skew cooler rather than warmer.

PAST PARTICIPANT COMMENTS:

  • Being able to network and pick other AD’s brains was very helpful. The fact that all the information was geared towards independent schools was really beneficial. Other conferences I have attended were more geared towards public schools.
  • The conference was very well organized with excellent speakers and relevant topics.
  • The most important part of the ADC was having the opportunity to learn more about the rapidly changing role of athletics in independent schools.
  • I am extremely grateful that SAIS hosted an athletic directors conference. It is incredibly difficult to find quality and relevant professional development for athletics. THANK YOU!
  • Great sessions and excellent chance to network with other ADs.
