Spend two days with fellow Heads, Trustees, and Business Officers immersed in relevant topics and engaging in rich and intentional conversations.  Risk management and strategic planning will be the themes of the conference this year. A presentation by United Educators' Alex Miller on Cybersecurity will kick off our conference on Wednesday, followed by various breakout sessions and full-group presentations. Thursday will begin with NAIS Senior Vice President, a thought-provoking presentation by Jefferson Burnett with NAIS, followed by a "roll up your sleeves" session on Strategic Agility with Kathy Pearson, President and Founder of Enterprise Learning.  We'll wrap up Thursday with Debra Wilson, incoming president of SAIS and current legal counsel for NAIS, as well as a variety of breakout sessions.
