CAIS Heads and Chairs Conference
Each year, the Heads of School and Board Chairs of CAIS member schools gather for the Annual Conference. The Conference is hosted by a different school or group of schools every year.
The Conference includes workshops for new Heads and new Chairs, notable Guest Speakers, separate sessions for Heads and Chairs, and the CAIS Annual General Meeting. Several other presentations and workshops take place, varying each year, based on significant Canadian issues and/or on independent school management.
The Heads and Chairs Conference offers an excellent opportunity for the most influential people in the Canadian independent school system to gather in one place to learn and share with colleagues.
