The History of AFIS
In 2010, Advancement teams from French and International independent schools across the nation gathered together for the annual CASE-NAIS Conference in New York City. Utilizing the logistical opportunity of being able to be in the same place at the same time, the group of Advancement professionals decided to meet at the French-American School of New York (courtesy of Jane Von Trapp, former Director of Institutional Advancement) to share ideas, discuss the present and future of independent school Advancement as it pertains to the unique structure and environment of French language immersion schools, and compare goals and strategies.
This was the beginning of AFIS, the Advancement for French and International Schools.
