The Training Institute at the American International School of Johannesburg (AISJ)

Energizing and equipping a Board of Directors to embrace strategic governance and to operate at a generative level for the benefit of our institutes is no easy task. But it can be done…with a little help.

Dr. Bill Ryan, a co-author of the seminal governance text, Governance As Leadership, has led Heads of Schools and their Board members through a series of training institutes that has transformed effective governance for schools. The program includes a detailed introduction for newcomers to the triple helix of governance (fiduciary, strategic, and generative), a deep dive with challenging case studies, focus groups, and sessions for school teams with differing levels of experience.

Relevant Details:

  • Dates: Saturday 1 September 08:30 to 16:00 and Sunday 2 September 08:30 to 14:30
  • Venue: AISJ Campus, Saddlebrook Estate, Midrand
  • Cost for ISASA members: R2250 for the weekend (which includes meals and a reception Friday night).
