Greetings and welcome to the NAIS 2012 Annual Conference Online Community.

The Daily find will also start today with several posts per week moving to a daily schedule as we approach the conference. During the 3 to 4 days surrounding the conference, you will likely see multiple posts as community members post their reflections and experiences. Feel free to add your post as well by sending them to firstname.lastname@example.org. You can learn more about submitting blog entries by visiting the Blog Submission Instructions link. While on the topic of blogs, you may also want to look over the list of independent school bloggers. This is an impressive list of educators sharing their experiences and ideas with the community. If you would like to add your blog to this list and be included in the RSS feed for independent school bloggers, follow the blog submission instructions.
For those who want to look back at past conference conversations, you can access both the 20120 and 2011 Annual Conference Online Communities through the Archive of Past Communities.
I am personally looking forward to a wonderful year of great conversations both online and in Seattle. So, let the dialogue begin as we look toward INNOVATION in education. [Chris Bigenho]
