Trustee Education Series

Join SAIS President Debra Wilson for the new Trustee Education Series focused on best practices in independent school governance, including boundaries, confidentiality, committee structure, and more. The curriculum is designed for heads of school, board chairs, and trustees.

Heads of school, board chairs, and chairs of the committee on trustees/governance committee are strongly encouraged to attend together with new trustees. This series is an invaluable opportunity for all trustees, especially new trustees, to understand their critical and appropriate role on an independent school board. 

THE FINE PRINT:
- The sessions are free for participants from SAIS member schools.
- The fee for non-member school participants is $75 per person.
- The Zoom links will be included in the reminder emails sent 24 hours and 2 hours prior to the start time.
- The sessions will be recorded and a link will be emailed to all registrants within 72 business hours.
