Heads' Retreat 2018

Wednesday, March 7, 2018 (12pm - 4pm US/Eastern)

The Birch Room
Omni Hotel CNN Center [map]
100 CNN Center NW
Atlanta, GA 30303

An opportunity, prior to the opening of the NAIS conference, for school heads to gather and reflect on the nature of school headship and its intersection with the spiritual life. Billy Peebles is a veteran school head and a person who thinks deeply about the moral and spiritual foundation for schools and school leadership. He will lead us through an afternoon of discussion, quiet reflection, and sharing of some of the common challenges faced by school heads.
The retreat [has offered me] the unique opportunity to find the time for prayer, song, silence, reflection and engaging conversation around the topic of why we do the work we do. I didn't know exactly what to expect when I came, but I was absolutely thrilled with what I left with from the retreat! Jan Pullen, Head of School, Saint Stephen's Episcopal School, Bradenton, FL
Join your colleagues for a half-day spiritual retreat and exploration designed to dovetail with the NAIS Annual Conference.
