It is with great excitement that I introduce myself to you as the new executive director of PAISBOA! I believe in Independent School education and know that all of us are passionate about ensuring students learn, grow and thrive in our schools. I understand the complexities and challenges that our schools are facing from my work with accreditation and know that financial sustainability is paramount for all of our member schools.

As I complete my third week here, I want you to know that we are here and we are listening! I attended my first board meeting, met with many of our members and partners, as well as some of our vendors and consultants. Here is what I know so far: PAISBOA is a multifaceted, robust association that is 180 members strong and growing. Our board, committees, and staff are committed to supporting all aspects of business office operations from finance and facilities to HR and insurance. Our vendors and consultants are knowledgeable and understand independent schools.
