Heads across the AISNE network frequently indicate they would like to spend more time with their peer leaders. Building and nurturing our professional networks is critical today. We invite you to join us on May 2 for the AISNE Annual Meeting at Walnut Hill School for the Arts from 4:30-7:00 pm. The association meeting will be followed by a guest speaker and then a networking reception.
This year's guest speaker, Dan Lerner, is on a mission to debunk the myth that success and happiness are mutually exclusive. His work illustrates that the more we work on identify what drives our well-being, the more success we can find as individuals and communities. Author, researcher and lecturer at NYU, Lerner teaches the most popular elective at the university, entitled, The Science of Happiness.

More about Dan Lerner:
Dan Lerner has long been fascinated with performance excellence and the realization of unique potential. As a strengths-based performance coach, teacher, and speaker he works with both established and high-potential musicians, athletes, and numerous Fortune 500 companies and executives to leverage the advantage that a healthy psychological state can bring to their performance both at work and at home.
Currently on the faculty at both New York University (where he teaches “The Science of Happiness”) and the University of Pennsylvania (where he works with the graduate program in Applied Positive Psychology), Lerner taught at NYU’s Steinhart School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, and was a featured presenter at the Third World Congress of Positive Psychology.
Following a decade at International Creative Management (where he specialized in the representation and development of young performers) and at 21C Media Group (where he was a co-founder and the director of artist development), Dan Lerner studied closely with renowned sports psychologist Dr. Nathaniel Zinsser, a Director of The Center for Enhanced Performance at the United States Military Academy at West Point. Under Dr. Zinsser, Mr. Lerner studied coaching and performance enhancement techniques employed by professional and Olympic athletes.
He has since furthered his experience in the field working with acclaimed experts in Organizational Development, Leadership Development, and Executive Coaching. He holds a Masters in Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania and is currently writing a book about the process and mindset that leads to healthy, uniquely individual excellence.
