Annual Heads Conference

April 23-24, 2015

The Heads’ Conference this year will focus on managing the rapid pace of change in our personal lives, at our schools, and at AIMS. Rob Evans, always a compelling speaker, will talk about Leading in the New Age of Uncertainty; Ron Goldblatt will present the newly re-designed accreditation process and reflect on his experiences during a forty-year career in education and law; and Kathy Minardi, Head at Aidan Montessori, and a committee of Heads will celebrate Ron’s sixteen-year tenure as Executive Director. The Annual Business Meeting will take place on Thursday afternoon and will include approval of the AIMS operating budget and nominations to the AIMS Board of Trustees. Time to explore Annapolis and dinner at Harry Browne’s will round out a relaxing and informative day and a half of food, fellowship, and vital conversation.
