NBOA’s Business Officer Institute (BOI) is designed to connect newer business officers and business operations professionals with a national network of colleagues and provide the hands-on tools and resources that will help make your school operations a success. Participants learn about the latest developments in accounting and finance, human resources, facilities, business operations, board reporting and technology, as they apply to the independent school industry.
With the safety of participants, faculty and staff top of mind, NBOA has decided to hold an all-virtual BOI this June, with unique opportunities to learn and connect from the comfort of your home or office. Our team of NBOA staff and experienced faculty from around the country are busy planning an engaging, one-of-a-kind program. The 2021 BOI experience, while different, will continue to deliver the best-in-class content and important networking that business officers have come to expect.
BOI was created by business officers and is geared toward business officers who are new, or relatively new, to their roles, and provides an immersion into the independent school world in a safe-to-learn environment. For those with more experience in the profession, BOI provides an opportunity to get up to date on the latest tools and resources that will help you grow in your leadership role at your independent school.
BOI is also valuable for other business office professionals to consider, including controllers, human resources directors or anyone aspiring to become the business officer of an independent school.
The program offers a blend of general sessions that develop a foundation of skills and knowledge, and smaller, cohort learning that allows you to make connections and build a network of peers at independent schools. The focused, energizing virtual program helps you both learn and connect in a short amount of time.
Sessions are taught by experienced faculty who are highly-regarded business officers currently working in independent schools and facing the very issues you are. NBOA staff who are experts on independent school business operations and some of whom have also served as business officers also lead focused seminars on key areas, as do experts with industry-specific knowledge.
NBOA will provide further details on program specifics and registration in January 2021.
