"I attended my first CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference in the mid-1980s. I remember thinking that I had 'found my tribe!' CASE-NAIS is an incubator for new ideas that are tested and reformed. The time spent at this conference with others who share their varied experiences is an opportunity for real professional growth."
— Mary K. Carrasco, Assistant Head of School for Advancement, Sidwell Friends School
"Two months into my first year as a Chief Advancement Officer, I attended the 2020 CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference. To say that it set me on my path is an understatement. I met peers and co-mentors who continue to inspire, guide, and support me. The breakout sessions targeted critical areas and offered richly layered and substantive lessons that energized, propelled, and substantively shaped my work."
— Courtney Tomaselli, Chief Advancement Officer, Kingsley Montessori School
"This is one of my favorite conferences because it draws the most independent school advancement professionals from across the country. I feel the power of connectivity and know that we all learn new strategies for developing successful advancement shops through communications, enrollment management, alumni relations, fundraising, talent management, and more."
— Shelley Greenwood, Assistant Head of School, The Latin School of Chicago (IL)
