DIA Schools Collaborative Memberships were introduced two years ago in response to DIA Schools Summit attendees’ requests to “go deeper” and continue to work with like-minded colleagues beyond the annual event. In the same light as memberships evolved, partnerships developed to forge deeper alliances while cross-marketing respective missions throughout the year, rather than just as once-annual event sponsors.

The annual DIA Schools Summit, now DIA’s tentpole gathering, is scheduled October 21-23, 2024, on the campus of St. Thomas University in Houston, Texas, expecting 200 attendees (members and non-members) from across the US and beyond. All twelve-month partnerships include a display table at the event located in areas of high visibility during the conference, and one or two registrations, valued at $400 per person.
