Opportunities for Supporting TAIS
Do you have a product or service that would benefit independent schools?
If so, you should consider becoming involved with TAIS through one of the opportunities below.
Corporate Support Program
Corporate Sponsors and Friends support TAIS and its events, such as professional development workshops, conferences, retreats, and meetings, throughout the school year. While TAIS does not officially endorse the products and/or services offered by these companies, it is part of the association’s mission to create opportunities to connect member schools with useful resources that may assist them in providing an outstanding educational program for their students and families. For information on benefits and pricing, please
To gain additional exposure to our schools, both Corporate Sponsors and Corporate Friends may choose to underwrite an individual TAIS Workshop or Roundtable Discussion event. In addition, one or two Corporate Sponsors at a time will be able to underwrite the annual Heads Retreat. Underwriting an event will entail paying a significant portion of its expenses. The details will need to be discussed in advance, as each event is different in audience type, number in attendance, and location. In exchange, we will not only provide your company with visibility through electronic signage throughout the event and include your logo on the event’s program, but you will be able to send up to two representatives to it to network informally with the participants and speak to the group for two minutes.
Corporate Sponsors may submit session proposals for the Innovation & Technology Institute or The Biennial Conference. A maximum of six sessions at each conference will be available to companies that participate in the Corporate Support Program. Corporate Friends may also submit proposals for sessions for the Innovation & Technology Institute or the Biennial Conference, but only if they are co-presenting with a member school. We seek dynamic presenters who are experts in their field. Session proposals must be reviewed and approved by the conference steering committee, and must be submitted at least six months before the date of the Biennial Conference, and at least two months before the date of the annual Technology Institute.
TAIS offers two opportunities for you to display your company’s products or services via a booth, similar to trade shows. TAIS also provides incentives for the attendees to ensure exhibitors’ booths receive maximum attendance. The potential exhibit opportunities include:
- Innovation & Technology Institute - Attended by over 150 Teachers, Technology Coordinators, and Administrators (November of odd-numbered years)
- TAIS Biennial Conference - Attended by over 1,400 Teachers, Heads of School and Administrators (November of even-numbered years)
