Event Details

Economies of School

Today’s independent school leader requires a strong set of skills. You must possess a sharp financial focus to guide the economic success of your school; recognize, evaluate, and adapt to coming trends; and help to create a safe and healthy community that serves your mission.   

Every day, economic factors both inside and outside our industry affect our schools, our communities, and our future. From affordability and value to competition and cost, to managing the daily operations while sustaining the highest quality of education possible; each component of independent school management can bring on new challenges you must face daily.

Join us at the 2019 MISBO Fall Conference, where you will hear from leaders in areas of independent school management including finance, compensation, liability and risk management, building successful programs, and why people matter most. Greet the complex changes coming to education through stories of success and failure, and what we can learn from both.

Who should attend:

  • Business and Operations Officers
  • Business and Operations Staff
  • HR Directors
  • Heads of School
  • Other Administration
