2018 Think Tank

The 2018 NAIS Annual Conference Think Tank is an advisory group of independent school opinion leaders who help to guide programming and planning. NAIS Annual Conference planning starts 18 months before each conference as we meet with these local leaders to brainstorm.

The NAIS Annual Conference is enriched by volunteers like those named below, who have offered their time generously in order to serve school leaders by creating innovative and exciting programming to inspire and enlighten participants. We at NAIS are indebted to:
