Summer Webinar Series

The Next Normal: Enrollment Trends and Strategies in Uncertain Times

NBOA and the Enrollment Management Association (EMA)’s partnership to explore the independent school business model is concluding its second year in times more uncertain than ever. As we approach the “next normal,” leaders in the business office and enrollment management will need to work together to navigate a rapidly changing landscape and tackle pressing questions. How can we reduce summer melt? What support do families need? What does next year look like? Drawing on results from an EMA member survey conducted in response to COVID-19 and EMA’s recent special report, presenters will share key insights and actionable takeaways to help you move forward.



Peter Baron, Chief Member Relations Officer, The Enrollment Management Association

Baron is responsible for the creation and oversight of EMA's external programs and its membership promise. He oversees EMA's marketing and communications, member recruitment and retention, and outreach functions, as well as its leadership training programs, research, and other related strategic initiatives. Previously Baron served Blackbaud as a member of the K-12 executive committee and led the business development of its K-12 partner network, working with schools, associations and other partners to increase the value of Blackbaud products across the entire school community.


Hans Mundahl, Director of Professional Development, The Enrollment Management Association

Mundahl has been an educator since 1995, when he first stepped into the classroom as a Fulbright exchange teacher in the former East Germany. Since then he has done about every job possible at an independent school, from teacher to administrator. Most recently Mundahl was the head of school at a K-8 day school in central New Hampshire. His spare time is usually spent with his family, but he is also passionate about the outdoors and protecting the environment.
