Join SAIS President Debra Wilson, heads of school, board chairs, and trustees for the 2022–2023 school year Trustee Education Series. We will discuss the basic concepts of independent school governance, including boundaries, confidentiality, committee structure, and more.

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.
