Welcome to PAISBOA!

PAISBOA is an Association for Business Officers, by Business Officers 

Our Primary Focus is YOU and Your Needs as a Business Office Professional!  

PAISBOA provides a multitude of ways to engage with other Business Officers and those related to the Business Office.  Members have options for enhancing their personal and professional development, taking a leadership role on the board or a committee, mentoring a new Business Officer, staying current on issues, getting inspired, and enjoying the camaraderie of independent school colleagues who understand your particular challenges and interests.   Besides a robust network of Business Office colleagues, PAISBOA provides a number of special arrangements and contracted services on behalf of our member schools, as well as access to expert advice for the Business Officer and related departments.  We look forward to seeing you at our next meeting!
