Monday night you are free to make dinner reservations on your own – please contact Tedda if you’d like to be set up with a group.

Tuesday morning the conference kicks off with Kristen Carey Power, Senior Director of Membership & Business Development, Enrollment Management Association. In her presentation, Beyond Getting In: The Business of Enrollment, Kristen's session will include an overview of the financial trends and educational choices affecting independent schools, offering strategies to help leadership teams position their institutions in a market of rising competition.
