ABOUT THE WEBINAR

Welcome to school trusteeship! You have been entrusted with and taken on a great responsibility: the success of your school now and into the future. Whether or not you have served on a board before, trusteeship in the context of an international school is unique.

The purpose of this webinar is to introduce you to the fundamentals of international school trusteeship and to address some critical areas, including:

      • understanding the chief responsibilities of the board;
      • being ‘mission focused’;
      • differentiating between governance (the board) and operations (the school's administration);
      • assessing how successful the school is in fulfilling its mission;
      • the critical importance of the fiduciary and strategic aspects of trusteeship.

This workshop is designed to give you a good grounding in the fundamentals of trusteeship, to answer whatever questions you might have, and to connect with other trustees from the NESA region – all in an informal setting.

Again, welcome!

More than ever before, boards of international independent schools can make a vital difference in the advancement and success of their institutions.

— Donna Orem, President, National Association of Independent Schools
