SAES 2017
60th Anniversary
Biennial Conference


The Rev'd. David A. Madison, D. Min.

Dear Friends:

It is my honor to invite you to the 2017 SAES Biennial Conference taking place at the JW Marriott Galleria in Houston on October 26-27, 2017.  

Sixty years ago, the Texas Association of Episcopal Schools was formed for the purpose of supporting the work of Episcopal schools in the Lone Star State. Throughout the years, this ministry grew to work with eleven dioceses in six different states. In the 1980s, SAES answered the call to begin providing accreditation services to help our schools participate in a reflective process of self-improvement. Through our workshops, conferences, consultations services, and dedication to our schools, we continue the legacy of being the premier professional organization for Episcopal schools in this region. I am humbled that I have been called to continue this great work. My hope is that you will be able to join us in Houston as we celebrate the   sixty years of ministry of SAES.

Also, I am happy to announce that Brené Brown will serve as the keynote speaker for our time together. Brené is a passionate   supporter of Episcopal education and will share inspiring words on the impact that our schools can have on young people. She will encourage us to be our best so that we can, in turn, serve our students in a way that will prepare them to enter the world and change lives for the better. I am also excited to welcome Donna Orem, president of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS), to our conference. I know that our heads of school will look forward to her remarks concerning trends in independent education. 

In addition, our celebration will also include honoring the four inaugural winners of the Connie Wootton Excellence in Teaching Award.  Due to the generosity of long-time friends of the association, SAES has honored my predecessor with a series of teaching awards that bear her name. These five thousand dollar prizes will be given to four SAES teachers whose dedication to their work in the classroom deserves recognition. I can’t think of a better way to honor Connie or the teachers in our classrooms.

In closing, thank you for all that you do to serve students in your communities. I look forward to seeing you in Houston!

Yours in Christ,

The Rev. David A. Madison, D. Min.

Executive Director
