Reconnect. Reaffirm. Renew.        

This year’s Heads Retreat will focus on getting the best out of ourselves as school leaders and out of the people who lead alongside us during this unique transitional moment. Leadership educator and executive coach Kate Ebner will keynote the morning session, offering an opportunity for reflection on our own leadership as we transition ourselves and our communities away from the pandemic and into a new experience. The afternoon will include an interactive workshop facilitated by the Nebo Group discussing strategies and tips for cultivating a high-functioning, connected and happy leadership team.

We’ll also offer two pre-sessions on Thursday, one for early-career heads focusing on joy and affirmation in long-term headship and another that includes a legal update for all heads of school.

The Retreat will include the ever-popular opening cocktail party and dinner, both of which greatly enhance the Retreat experience and are highly encouraged.

The conference cost – which includes Thursday sessions, the Thursday cocktail party, and all meals and sessions on Friday – is $505.
There is an additional $75 per person cost to attend dinner on Thursday evening.

Financial aid is available case-by-case for heads of school who are uncertain if they can attend the conference due to budgetary reasons. Please contact Lynn Maloney should you wish to discuss this option. Our goal is to ensure that every head of school who wants to attend the conference may do so.



Retreat attendees interested in staying overnight on Thursday evening must make their own reservations at the resort. Click here for instructions on reserving a room under the AISGW reservation block. Please reserve your room by October 7th.
