What is the Girls’ School Net:

NCGS will host a Girls’ School NET: Networking & Empowering Together reception in Washington, DC, during the 2017 NCGS Conference, Education Innovation: Building Cultures of Creativity. Girls’ School NET events are a unique opportunity for member schools to connect with their alumnae and fellow educators from other NCGS schools.

For advancement offices, Girls’ School NET receptions are readymade, cost-effective regional alumnae events. Participation fees are based on how may guests attend from your school. Invite your alumnae to make three powerful connections in one evening: engage with their alma mater, unite with classmates in their region, and network with local girls’ school alumnae.

The Girls’ School NET is also a great way for administrators and educators to connect with peers working in a common capacity across the U.S. and abroad from a network of over 200 NCGS member schools. Receptions are complimentary for NCGS member school representatives and conference attendees.
