Registration Information

The 2023 NAIS People of Color Conference (PoCC) was held in St. Louis, MO, from November 29–December 2. 

Registration is now closed.


NAIS strives to make the People of Color Conference a place where the independent school community can come together to reflect, refresh, and build relationships in a collaborative and nurturing environment. NAIS welcomes administrators, faculty, and staff from NAIS Member Schools, Premium and Standard Subscriber Schools, Association Members, NAIS Supporters, and conference sponsors, exhibitors, and speakers. Non-members who are part of or directly serve schools and the independent school community are also invited to register. If you have any questions about registration eligibility or joining NAIS, please contact our membership team.

Note: NAIS reserves the right to deny registration to any person or entity at its sole discretion if it deems their purpose may be disruptive to the spirit of the event. 

Group Registration: We encourage teams from schools to attend the conference together and take away shared experiences and knowledge to put to use at your school. In order to receive group discounts, all registrations must be done at the same time. Click here to view the group registration instructions.

If you have any questions about PoCC registration, please contact the PoCC registration team at (864) 208-8445 or [email protected].
