  • Seize The Conversation: The new marketing for Jewish day schools (Midway Room)

Gary Wexler, USC/Annenberg

It's not about branding, social marketing and storytelling. What fundraising and recruitment results have you seriously gained from all the money spent on these actions? Find out what really succeeds in today's very changed and challenging environment. But don't expect easy answers and formulae. Come prepared to think critically and creatively--understanding the hard work that marketing Day Schools really requires.

  1. Seizing the Conversation  (The essence of what I spoke about today is there.)
  2. Sign up for The Blogifesto where I challenge many of the sensibilities and methodologies of the wider nonprofit sector. 

  • Boards: Why Data is Crucial and How to Get It (Logan Room)

Sacha Litman, Measuring Success

Often board members feel like their flying blind when it comes to decision making. Without boots in the classroom, it can be hard to know what actions to take to best serve your school’s needs.  Discover the power of a data dashboard to inform strategic decision making and learn how to use carefully gathered facts and figures instead of anecdotes. Conduct a “back-of-the-envelope” exercise that demonstrates how to collect and organize your school’s data. To get the most out of this exercise, please bring budget information, enrollment figures, and survey data, if available.

  • I’m a Board Chair- Now What? (LaGuardia Room)

Alex Sagan, JCDS Boston

Taking on the lead lay position in your school can seem daunting.  There is nothing that can fully prepare you for stepping into these shoes.  This session will examine some strategies for managing the work load, dealing with difficult personalities, making strategic decisions, delegating the tasks and using committees effectively.
