Registration for this event is open to Leaders and Board Members of AISSA Member Schools.

Leading schools in the 21st Century requires strategic insight and leadership from school boards. This conference will provide an opportunity for education leaders and school boards to engage with contemporary education thinking and to consider how this may shape the ways they lead schools both now and in the future. I would encourage all members of school Boards and leadership teams to attend and to make the most of this professional learning opportunity.
