Welcome Message from the Executive Director

Dear New Head of School,

On behalf of all our member schools, the board of trustees, and our office staff I want to welcome you to EARCOS. We have loads of PD opportunities and support from our office and colleagues around the region. Please don’t hesitate to ask for information or help. We are here to support you and your school. There are 31 new heads of schools this year.

It is my goal to call each of you in then next few weeks to say hello and to ask for your school’s continuing support for EARCOS and all we do.

Here are 3 items that may be of interest to you;

1. At our annual EARCOS Leadership Conference(ELC) we have the Leadership Through Partnership (LTP) pre-conference for new heads and board chairs. I hope you will consider this as a way to get the support you need from your chair. Marc Frankel is an excellent presenter.

2. Additionally, we have a one day pre-conference on governance for trustees and the head of school. This will be our first time that the board training will include the head of school. Marc Frankel and Bambi Betts will lead this governance opportunity.

3. Please make your ELC hotel reservations at the Bangkok Shangri-La ASAP to insure being at the conference hotel. ELC registration material was sent at the end of June.

Take care and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Dick Krajczar
Executive Director
