Founded in 2014, the Association of Technology Leaders in Independent Schools (ATLIS) is the first international professional association uniquely focused on independent school technology, offering targeted professional development, resources, and networking for technology leaders and their staff. ATLIS’s mission is to help technology leaders stay informed in an ever-changing and complex industry, connect with colleagues across the globe, and reflect on their professional practice. Over the last four years, ATLIS has established itself as a 501c3 organization, built a strong governing Board of Directors, and expanded to a staff of three. With robust membership growth, a celebrated annual conference, and an ever-expanding slate of professional development opportunities, ATLIS is well-positioned to extend its impact and influence in the independent school community.


ATLIS supports its members by providing an ecosystem of key professional learning opportunities, a scholarly journal, online peer communities, regional networking events, and a wildly successful annual conference. The Early Career and Aspiring Technology Director’s Institute (ECATD) connects emerging leaders with a seasoned and professional cadre of mentors, cultivating a pipeline of exceptionally prepared future leaders for independent schools. ATLIS membership provides technology leaders and their teams with the tools necessary to be astute decision makers.

As ATLIS embarks on an exciting period of growth, the ATLIS board seeks a dynamic leader who will build on the momentum of the past four years, chart new strategic priorities, and elevate the organization to international prominence. This visionary leader will report to the ATLIS Board of Directors and start no later than July 1, 2019.
