NBOA 25 Years

Celebrate Excellence in Independent School Business Operations

Since NBOA’s founding 25 years ago, independent school business and operations have evolved from transactional recordkeeping to transformational strategy. School business leaders and professionals have been at the forefront of progress in countless ways, from managing the Great Recession’s financial challenges to reinventing operations during the recent pandemic to reimagining the business model today.

Join NBOA in Los Angeles at the 2023 NBOA Annual Meeting to commemorate 25 years of business operations excellence and the incredible strides we’ve made as an industry and as a profession. In a city where celebrities typically take center stage, this meeting will shine a spotlight on the sometimes-unsung stars in the business office. To celebrate the association’s milestone, NBOA is bringing together the greatest minds in independent school business. Join us as we tackle today’s most pressing issues and prepare for the next 25 years.
