2016 ACAMIS Conference

Search Associates is proud to be a sponsor for the 2016 ACAMIS (Association of China and Mongolia International Schools) Spring Conference held on March 4-5, hosted by the International School of Beijing. With nearly 70 member schools, ACAMIS serves to advance the professional growth of all staff, increase student cooperation through a variety of activities (cultural, enrichment, and sports), and promote communication and friendship through conferences and special events. With over 300 participants, the ACAMIS Spring Conference, "Doing School Different", encourages schools to think out of the box to meet the growing needs of a changing world.

Michael Williams, Senior Associate for Search Associates and former President of ACAMIS was able to witness the growth of the international schools in this region. He observed, "Being a part of ACAMIS during its formative years gives me a great appreciation for the role of international schools in developing friendship, respect, and understanding among diverse cultures. The world is building bridges, and international schools are an important part in creating a unified, peaceful planet."

Congratulations to ACAMIS for its role in serving the international school community.
