The Role of School Leadership in Mitigating Cybersecurity Risk
Date: January 29, 2020
Independent schools reported a 90% increase in negative impacts as a result of cybersecurity incidents between 2017 and 2018. While the IT department can be an important ally, this work must be managed by senior leadership and should be part of a broader risk management strategy. Hear about challenges independent schools have experienced and learn to develop a strategy and road map to address these risks. In this webinar, you will learn to take a wholistic approach to Cyber and Data security, covering technology, personnel and policies. We will speak specifically to ways to prioritize mitigating your risk.

Enrollment Contracts Perpetual/Continuous Contracts, and Enforcement Issues
Date: February 11, 2020
Schools are trying hard to both reduce time and waste in their school processes. In this vein, the perpetual enrollment contract has become popular. Before you jump on the bandwagon, understand the pros/cons of perpetual enrollment agreements. In addition, all enrollment agreements, whether perpetual or not, should have clear clauses that protect the school. Finally, if you use electronic signatures, you must ensure the process is correct if you intend to enforce the agreement. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar. Space is limited.
Alumni Relations 101
Date: February 19, 2020
According to the NAIS 2019-2020 Trendbook, philanthropic giving by alumni and alumni parents to the annual fund has increased by 27% since 2014. Alumni represent a key driver of both development efforts and represent a growing admissions value through professional networking. School leaders are feeling the urgency to develop or bolster their alumni engagement programs. For schools without a formal alumni program or hiring their first dedicated alumni engagement director, knowing where to start can be a daunting proposition. With the collected wisdom of scores of alumni directors, gathered through personal interview and workshop sessions, participants will learn where to focus their energy in the first two years and the most important elements of creating an alumni program that will engage and resonate with their school’s alumni. The webinar will explore proven methods to connect with alumni that graduated in 8th grade and those that graduated in 12th.
