Leadership is a central theme in all SAIS programs. The SAIS Athletic Directors Conference will address topics of strategic leadership and operational excellence in a school's athletic offerings. Designed for athletic leaders from mission-driven independent schools, this opportunity for learning and engagement is an integral part of the networking and professional development program.

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.


  • 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.
