NAIS is still planning to hold all summer institutes as scheduled. Registration remains open. We are continuing to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will communicate any changes with schools.
Registration for the 2020 NAIS Leadership Through Partnership (LTP) workshop is now open!
2020 NAIS Leadership Through Partnership workshop
October 9 - 11, 2020
Westin DC City Center
NAIS, in partnership with the Center for Creative Leadership
, has enhanced and refined the Leadership Through Partnership workshop to enable effective, successful board and head relationships. Using case studies and leadership-building activities and learning sessions, this new program will review how to leverage your unique positions as trustees, board chairs, and heads of school, to have a long-lasting, positive impact on your schools. LTP provides school heads and board leader(s) the chance to collaborate and strengthen their partnership.
Away from busy day-to-day life, you can identify shared goals for your school. For the newly appointed head, board chair, or trustee, LTP proves particularly valuable to forge a positive and effective relationship. For the trustee and school head with a well-established relationship, LTP offers an opportunity to gain fresh perspectives on styles of collaboration in the context of new challenges and priorities.
Follow along and be part of the LTP conversation on Twitter with #NAISLTP.
Primarily designed for the independent school board chair and head of school, LTP is increasingly attended by teams that include other trustees, such as the vice chair, chair elect, treasurer, or the chair of the committee on trustees.
LTP offers a variety of different learning opportunities and approaches to maximize the working relationship between the head of school and board of trustees. Through a number of sessions, LTP will focus on helping you:
- Understand the basics of nonprofit and independent school governance;
- Experience and learn the structure, strategies, and approaches to governance
found in independent schools;
- Strengthen the overall board-head working relationship;
- Discuss how to create and sustain generative boards; and
- Identify and discuss working styles and preferences while creating an effective
communication and support system.
- Donna Orem, president, NAIS;
- Facilitators from the Center for Creative Leadership;
- and more!
