2018 MISBO Fall Conference

Hilton Head Island, SC
October 3-5, 2018
For the past several years independent schools have been asking some big questions. Are we still relevant in today’s world of ever-changing education? What will the students of tomorrow need, and how do we anticipate those needs? Do we have the right mix of programs, facilities, faculty, and technology to support those needs? The 2018 MISBO Fall Conference will connect you with industry professionals, along with some of our schools’ brightest leaders, providing you with answers to these questions. Keynote speaker Ian Symmonds will kick off the conference with three critical questions facing independent schools today, and better yet, he will guide you to find the answers for your school; you will be inspired by the engaging “Leadership Lessons from the Fields of Gettysburg,” which draws parallels between battle strategies and critical leadership traits (who knew?); the final day will have you reimagining student assessment and what that could mean for our country’s future leaders with The Mastery Transcript Consortium. Additional breakout sessions will broaden these themes, designed to offer solutions to many of the issues you face every day: hiring for key positions, compensation design, security, as well as long range and capital budget planning. This conference will also feature MISBO’s signature “Sourcing Solutions” session, providing attendees an opportunity to leave with valuable takeaways from MISBO vendors in short 15-minute mini-sessions, along with dedicated exhibit time to talk with vendors and sponsors. And as always, there will be endless opportunities to network and collaborate with your peers. Join us as we not only ask the important questions, but also provide the answers for you to take back to your school. Don't miss this opportunity for first-class professional development and networking in beautiful Hilton Head!
