2017 – 2018


Dear Potential Sponsors, We are grateful for your interest in partnering with The Association of Boarding Schools (TABS). Our ultimate goal in working with you is to connect you with the right people at the right time in the right place, enabling you to maximize your return on investment. The TABS boarding school membership includes 250 unique boarding schools from across the globe. In an effort to be their best and to deliver on their missions, the leaders and decision-makers in our schools are constantly on the lookout for the best products and services to enhance, streamline, and improve the excellent work they do with students. Your products and services allow them do just that, so connecting you with them is our priority. In the school year ahead we have several compelling opportunities for you to consider, especially at our Annual Conference (November 30 – December 2nd at Boston’s Marriott Copley Place). This year marks our 20th Conference Anniversary and we intend to blow the lid off with new, exciting signature offerings. Some you’ll see included here with many others will be unveiled this fall. The offerings don’t end there. We hope you will consider the other sponsorship options that exist with TABS, including our admission recruiting tours in Asia and Latin America, TABS Reports, and other professional development offerings such as TABS Lab, TABS/NAIS Global Symposium, and our Summer Session. Interested? Please contact me anytime. I’d enjoy the opportunity to learn more about you, your business, and your goals. My contact information is on the opposite page.
