Event Details

Are you a new Business Officer or new to independent schools?

Every individual who assumes a new role needs to find their “tribe.” Those new to the business officer position need one more than ever, as they touch each and every area of an independent school. This event will provide you the support you need as you navigate your way through those first years.

The MISBO Workshop for New Business Officers is designed to provide you with the critical tools you need to be successful. Sessions on school culture, risk management, the complexities of HR, the technology budget, as well as an introduction to governance will place you on the path to success.


  • New or relatively new Business Officers
  • Business Officers new to independent schools
  • Business office professionals who are new to their role or to independent schools, including Controllers and aspiring Business Officers

Testimonials from last year's Workshop

"I don't think I was really prepared for the position I was in. I knew more about what to expect and what to do with this conference."

"I really enjoyed the conference and the ability to network with others. The topics were great for a person like me who is new to independent schools."

"Very relevant information to my new role."

"I have a lot to learn but the tools discussed during this seminar made me feel much more confident about my ability to do so."

"I was a little concerned that my experience would be further along than what the conference was geared towards, but was glad to find that I still learned quite a bit."

"There was so much info available to a new person like myself."

"All sessions and speakers presented helpful information that was relevant to my position and I learned so much!"
