The 2013 SAIS-MISBO Annual Conference is the premiere educational and networking opportunity for independent school leaders across our region. We welcome your session proposal.  Please keep in mind that the audience is comprised of independent school heads and administrators (no teachers).  The target audience includes but is not limited to heads, assistant/associate heads, division heads, academic deans, business officers, communications directors, admissions directors, human resources directors, development directors, technology directors, and facilities directors. 
The 2013 SAIS-MISBO Annual Conference is actually two overlapping conferences:
  • Sunday programming will be focused for SAIS members.
  • Monday programming will be focused for both SAIS and MISBO members, providing a unique opportunity for all school leaders to learn together. Monday's general and breakout sessions will be designed to accomplish this goal.
  • Tuesday programming will be focused for MISBO members.
  • All attendees will be welcome at all sessions over the three-day period.
