Letter from the Chairman
Why You Need to Attend the 2021 CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference
The coming new year marks the 50th anniversary of the CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference. 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.
For the first time, CASE-NAIS will convene online. While I’ll miss seeing my schools’ friends in person, I’m excited knowing this online format will create a wonderful opportunity for even more people including the entire global schools’ community to participate in the dialogue (especially with the new school group rates).
2021 holds so much promise for our schools—I am confident we will thrive as we focus efforts on belonging and inclusivity to advance education to transform lives and society.
As chair of this year’s conference, I invite you and your colleagues to participate in our 50th Annual CASE-NAIS Independent Schools Conference, Jan. 26-28, 2021.
