Plans are underway for the next CASE-NAIS Conference,
Jan. 22-24, 2017, in Austin, TX.

We are looking to create a truly member-generated experience. To ensure we best meet your expectations, the 2017 Planning Committee invites your participation in shaping the program.

The conference will offer a wide selection of sessions covering all aspects of advancement, including marketing, fundraising, alumni relations, stewardship and leadership. We're seeking engaging sessions that showcase best practices, identify emerging trends and inspire new ways of advancing independent schools. Conference participants will come from all advancement professions and school sizes, so we encourage a wide range of session topics, from strategic big-picture concepts to practical how-to basics.

The deadline to submit your ideas has been extended to March 30, 2016.
