National Leaders Conference
The annual National Leaders Conference brings together school leaders to explore a theme related to issues, trends, challenges and opportunities currently facing independent schools. Each year, the conference focuses on either School Operations or Education Program.
Over three days, participants will have the opportunity to hear from leading experts in keynote speeches and panel discussions, and collaborate with their colleagues from other independent schools in smaller sessions that relate to their specific area of school function.
2024 National Leaders Conference
Dates: Sunday, April 14 to Tuesday, April 16, 2024
Audience: Education Program Leaders
Location: Westin Bayshore, Vancouver, BC
CAIS welcomes school leaders from around the country to gather together as a learning community. Engage with thought leaders, renew relationships and build new networks to support learning and leading in independent schools. The NLC is a time to reflect and renew, to share and learn from each other, to be challenged by new ideas, and to grow together as a community of leaders. The planning committee has put together a phenomenal slate of speakers, panels, and discussion groups to bring to life our CAIS values of community, leading, learning and global perspectives. Bring a team from your school and join us at EmpowerED!
