Joining a Community

Discover.nwais is a collection of online communities designed to help you connect with and be inspired by your association colleagues. Independent school administrators, faculty and staff from across NWAIS are finding new ideas, exchanging advice about school processes and sharing everyday tips.


We encourage you to join one or several NWAIS communities, which cover many topics and professional networks:



  1. Sign in to discover.nwais.org using your discover.nwais website username and password. 
The first time you log in, you’ll be required to agree to the terms and conditions.

  2. Join the groups you are interested in by clicking “Communities,” “All Communities” from the navigation bar, then click the green “Join” button to subscribe to different groups.  Some communities such as those for Heads of School and Business Officers can only be joined by invitation. Send us a request to be invited to a community.

  3. Select how often you would like to receive e.mail notifications of new discussion posts.
