2022 NBOA Annual Meeting

Feb 20-23  •  Chicago  •  Marriott Marquis

ELEVATE Your Business Operations in 2022 and Beyond

The preeminent meeting for independent school business operations professionals returns in-person this February! Join us in Chicago, a city known for inventive achievements, including the “L,” which earned its nickname when city leaders made the bold decision to ELEVATE the trains connecting the city, rather than construct an underground subway.

When you ELEVATE, you have a better vantage point from which to assess your current position and refine your strategy. The 2022 NBOA Annual Meeting will help you ELEVATE your professional knowledge, nurture entrepreneurial thinking and cultivate resourceful problem-solving to improve your school’s operational excellence and create sustainable growth — all while you connect with industry leaders, colleagues and business partners.

We’ve curated two distinct learning experiences that allow your whole team to participate in the way they’re most comfortable.

Join Us in Chicago

After two long years apart, we’ll be thrilled to welcome you to Chicago for a safe, in-person experience, where you can once again interact face-to-face with your colleagues, distinguished speakers, business partners and the NBOA staff. You’ll also enjoy all the energy, fun and spontaneity that a live event offers. Mingle and converse during the opening reception, cohort receptions, luncheons and breaks. Engage in solution-oriented discussions with partners at the Business Solutions Showcase. Celebrate individual and industry excellence during the NBOA Awards. Not to mention the incredible number of learning opportunities – more than 50 live sessions and access to all digital offerings! Tailor a learning pathway to strengthen your abilities and advance your career.
