Governance Workshops at
NAIS Conference - Live and On Demand

This year's NAIS Annual Conference is being held in Philadelphia, PA, on February 27-28, 2020. Did you know there is a 'Governance' Track for conference sessions? If you go, the governance track sessions are listed below. NAIS also records some of its conference sessions (from all tracks) and makes those recordings available for online streaming for 1 year, or they can be provided on a flash drive for a fee of $149 or $199, respectively, for NAIS member schools. The governance sessions in bold are recorded sessions that would be included in these on-demand viewing options.
