Accreditation Workshop

SAIS accreditation workshops are designed for the school’s team responsible for administering the process onsite.

It also offers participants the opportunity to ask questions in an informal setting.  

No workshop fee if also registered for the Annual Conference.

PLEASE NOTE that regional accreditation workshops are open only to current SAIS member schools going through a re-accreditation process.

Accreditation Visiting Team Chair Training
