Corporate Opportunities

Exhibit, Sponsor, Support, Advertise with NAIS

Connect with leaders in the independent school world to introduce them to your product or service.
The National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) is the largest national network of independent school leaders. We connect more than 22,000 decision makers at more than 1,700 schools in the U.S. and abroad. NAIS members look for products and expert guidance to help them plan strategically, train their teachers and staff, maintain buildings and grounds, stay financially healthy, organize their administrative services, and offer cutting-edge curriculum. They buy or influence the purchasing decisions of software, furniture, uniforms, fundraising services, and dozens of other services and products. There are several ways for your company or organization to engage with NAIS members.


Intensive visibility tied to a unique event

NAIS’s national conferences and immersive institutes offer unique vehicles to build your business relationships with independent school leaders. Various sponsorship packages for both the NAIS Annual Conference and NAIS People of Color Conference allow you to choose the level of connection that meets your marketing budget.
