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, which vary each year. Learn more & register here.
CAIS values the constant and deliberate quest for excellence, and we recognize the vital leadership role that governors play, in partnership with Heads, in the success of our schools. We want all of our schools to have strong Heads who focus on supporting the students of the present, but we also want strong Boards that focus on supporting the students of the future.
We surveyed our members and we spent a year figuring out what makes for effective governance in independent schools. Our updated Governance Guidelines include new learning on a number of areas, including Human Resources, Risk Management, Head Transitions, and Consent Agendas.
