ATLIS 2020 Annual Conference

Conference Crowdsourcing Timeline

ATLIS is committed to giving independent school technologists the information, resources, and networking opportunities they need to succeed. With that goal in mind, we’re turning our Annual Conference planning on its head and asking YOU to help us shape what will make Chicago’s event a must-attend event for you in April 2020. 

Have Your Say

So we’re crowdsourcing the content for the Annual Conference, and now’s the time for you to weigh in and have your say. By taking just a few minutes to answer a few questions, you can ensure that the Chicago event delivers a customized professional development opportunity for you and your team.

Respond to this survey by September 13, 2019!

Next, Rank Others’ Opinions

Once we gather feedback from technology leaders, we’ll give you a chance to rank the ideas. Keep an eye on your ATLIS emails, where we’ll invite you to vote and rank what sessions are most important to you and your school. 

Together, We’re Better

Only once we have a prioritized list of topics, issues, and sessions will we seek presenters and thought leaders in these spaces. We believe the “what” should come before the “who,” and we’re confident you’ll feel the difference in Chicago.

2019 Annual Conference Details

Share your conference materials and slides.

The Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools held its annual gathering of IT and edtech independent school leaders on April 14-17, 2019, in Dallas, TX. Our conference theme was "Deep in the Heart of TECHness." This convergence of independent school technology professionals is the only conference focused solely on the independent school technology community. 

One attendee at a past conference called it “the most relevant, most important conference I attend all year.” 

ATLIS is particularly grateful for the support of Platinum Sponsors Veracross and LearnPlatform for the ATLIS 2019 Annual Conference.
