Ahsan Karim on NYSAIS, NYCIST, and NEIT. 

A conversation with Ahsan Karim, Director of Technology at The Buckley School and President of NYCIST.  We discussed the relationships between the New York Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), the New York Consortium of Independent School Technologists (NYCIST), and the NYSAIS Education and Information Technology Conference (NEIT).  These organizations have lots of overlap in their membership, creating a rich network of education technologies who have each other at their fingertips, yet balance these online with numerous face to face meetings.
