Registration for the 2023 NAIS Leadership Through Partnership (LTP) will open in the spring.

2023 NAIS Leadership Through Partnership
Dates and location TBD

NAIS is pleased to offer this foundational governance program to best support heads and their board chairs. NAIS Leadership Through Partnership (LTP) provides heads and board chairs dedicated time to build a collaborative relationship, learn about best governance practices, and explore the most common challenges and opportunities facing independent schools today.


LTP is an event for a head of school and their board chair/trustee. For the newly appointed head, board chair, or trustee, LTP proves particularly valuable to forge a positive and effective relationship and support leadership sustainability. 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.

Topics Covered

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 interactive 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 effective independent school governance;
  • Strengthen the overall board-head working relationship;
  • Identify and discuss working styles and preferences while creating a constructive communication and support system.
