AIMS is 50 years old and 124 schools strong! Join us for this festive anniversary gathering of AIMS school heads, past and present, to celebrate our collective accomplishments, to look back and where we have been, and to look ahead at the many challenges and opportunities on the horizon. 

We will be welcoming honored guests, including Ron Goldblatt and Sarah Donnelly, who together represent decades of AIMS executive leadership and who have shaped the Association as it is today. And at our AIMS Annual Meeting, we will present our newly-completed Strategic Plan and provide commentary on the major initiatives that we see for the future.

Key features of the retreat:

· A panel of past and current heads and trustees, on how the landscape of governance and leadership has evolved over the years.
· A panel of students, reflecting on the dimensions of their current experience, including equity and inclusion, gender expression diversity, social activism, and school safety.

· A look at statistics that are currently impacting AIMS schools.
· A deep dive into issues of enrollment management on Friday morning, with Heather Hoerle, of the Enrollment Management Association.

This year's conference price includes the 50th Anniversary Celebration Dinner, complete with all the delicious fruits of the sea Annapolis has to offer, as well as a signature AIMS Cocktail to enjoy during the pre-dinner cocktail hour. Please note the later start time on Thursday, a nod to your requests to allow for easier commuting to Annapolis. Please also note the condensed schedule and simplified pricing options.

About the conference: Located in beautiful and historic downtown Annapolis, the AIMS Annual Heads Conference offers busy Heads of School the chance to think deeply and reflectively about their schools, best practices, and topics of broad educational and cultural importance. The conference also allows Heads of School to reconnect with colleagues and to take a brief, but important respite to support their own growth and renewal. No matter what stage they are in their careers, they will leave the Conference personally and professionally enriched and prepared to be even more productive as school leaders.
