It is with deepest regret that we share that the 2019 Expo sessions will not run in San Diego.

The response to our inaugural ISM Expo was fantastic, and we were excited about your interest in our 2019 event. However, as we moved closer to our event date, we encountered unforeseen issues that would impact our attendees' overall event experience. We ultimately felt the event would not meet our standards and your expectations for an ISM professional development event. Therefore, we have made the difficult decision to not run the Expo sessions in San Diego this year.

However, there are still seven topic-driven workshops being offered in San Diego! Each provides a rich learning experience about a specific area of private-school leadership. We hope you will still be able to join us for one of these fantastic workshops. 

Learn more about the seven workshops offered in San Diego and the rest of our school year workshops below.
