Being on Time for the Future
The February 3-6, 2019 AAIE LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE was constructed to ensure everyone who joins feels included, with almost all the time spent learning together and where our leadership conversations will continue beyond the walls of the San Francisco Hyatt Regency Hotel.
NINE THEMES– Ensuring our time together uses your feedback about key leadership challenges across our international schools. We are listening and then building from the expertise of our own members and thought leaders. 
THE NEW PRE-CONFERENCE A full day digging into the leadership challenge themes– you choose the one most essential for your leadership development. A day to construct ideas and possible solutions together. A number of pre-conference choices.
AISH OASIS DAY PLUS–– Our AISH colleagues and many other regional organizations meet to investigate fresh ideas and opportunities.
SUPERINTENDENT OF THE YEAR DINNER AND DANCE– Honoring the International School Superintendent of the Year, Rose C. Puffer.
WORLD COMMUNITY DAY A day we spend together. No break-out sessions on this day, instead together we learn from each other. Breakfast, brown bag lunch and wine and unwind. 
THE UN-KEYNOTE ADDRESS– An exchange of ideas, based on our leadership challenges where we listen to ways of thinking and doing and then engage each other town hall style.
THE HEAD-TALK– Different takes on leadership challenges, shared within 18 minutes, meant to challenge your thinking and adopt a new perspective. 
THE "DEEPER DIVE"– Two sessions where you choose your leadership challenge and go "deeper" to learn from a team of experts– building from success stories within our schools and from recognized thought leaders. Each session X 2 promotes shared leadership and dialog where the outcome is to determine where we need to go next.
