The 52nd Annual
EARCOS Leadership Conference 2022

October 27-29, 2022
Bangkok, Thailand

To our membership and friends,

It is with great happiness (and a healthy dose of hope) that EARCOS announces our in-person 52nd Annual Leadership Conference, from October 27-29, 2022 at the Shangri-la Hotel in Bangkok. The theme is Together, Again. It has been three years since we were last able to gather for a Leadership Conference. So many have written and called to tell us how much they have missed this annual special event. Please do join us.

Over the past two years, we have been fortunate to assemble an exceptional group of presenters who will help us explore some of the greatest issues, challenges and opportunities faced by international educators today. And what an incredible opportunity this offers to reconnect with so many colleagues from near and far.

All of us at EARCOS look forward to welcoming you to the 52nd Leadership Conference. Registration is now open. Don’t delay. This year’s conference promises to fill up quickly as so many are eager to come Together, Again after several years of separation.

See you in October!

Luncheon, Training, and Workshops

This year, we are delighted to announce a special luncheon for Women in Leadership as well as a series of sessions dedicated to Athletic and Activities Directors and to HR Managers and Facilities Managers. EARCOS is fortunate to have so many of our own school leaders who have volunteered to present workshops. Their contributions help to make EARCOS the great organization that it is!

ACS WASC accreditation is an ongoing six-year cycle of quality whereby the school demonstrates the capacity, commitment, and competence to support high-quality student learning and ongoing school improvement. A world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the U.S., WASC works closely with the Office of Overseas Schools under the U.S. Department of State.

Athletic & Activities Directors Program

Athletic and Activities Directors are invited to join author and motivational speaker, Nathan Whittaker, for a discussion on building strong teams & becoming leaders with a sense of mission.
