A Virtual Event | September 22, 2021

9:00am - noon EST

Effective governance and leadership have always been key to school success. This axiom has never been truer than now as we navigate the “long tail” of the COVID-19 pandemic. As schools continue to manage the implications of the crisis, they must also address long-term systemic changes that will impact enrollment, brand loyalty, school identity, and student wellness and well-being. Now, more than ever, trustees must get governance right from the beginning.

Join NCAIS for an energetic three hours of education, networking, and small group discussion—with some fun along the way! From thought leadership to updates on the shifting risk landscape to redefining institutional success, the NCAIS Trustee Workshop is intentional about elevating governance practices in member schools.

Topics we will cover in this session include the following:

  • Leading with Purpose: Adapting governance to a post-COVID world;

  • A Brave New World: Understanding and adapting to demographic and technological changes;

  • There is Never Enough: Grappling with finance and tough choices.

  • Avoiding the Abyss: Maximizing school success by avoiding the pitfalls of boards; and

  • Charting the Course: Re-calibrating what it means to be a successful school in a new era.

Judy Schechtman and Marc Frankel are among the most experienced strategy, governance, and leadership advisers in the private, independent education field. Their firm, Triangle Associates, works with schools worldwide, including many in North Carolina and the south-eastern United States.
