Join us in Austin this January for the
47th Annual Independent Schools Conference



Melissa von Stade

Melissa von Stade
Assistant Head for Development, Peddie School

This year the program takes its cues from our host city's famous slogan, "Keep Austin Weird." Created to promote small, independent businesses, the slogan lends itself (albeit loosely!) to independent schools and their often outside-the-box approaches to advancement: Finding creative inspiration through innovative programs, with a touch of whimsy to keep it interesting.

Come to Austin, and help us keep our independent schools uniquely independent!
