Conducts National Conventions on various educational themes for Principals and Teachers. These conventions provide opportunities to form contacts and exchange views at the national level. Associate Members are persons who are no longer connected with schools but have great, experience in the field of education.

The National Convention held at Bangalore init was decided that after the next convention, the general body will meet only once in two years and the regional body will meet when there is no National Convention and hence we have divided India into 13 regions and these regions are expected to have the regional convention every other year. The purpose of this regional convention is: Today, when the whole world is speaking of the necessity of connectedness and networking, it becomes a sacred mandate for us.

Catholic schools to come out of our isolated existence and promote solidarity among themselves following the mandate or our Founder Teacher, Jesus Himself, to love and to share the gifts and talents He has bestowed on us as individuals. AINACS therefore could become a medium, rather a forum the fosters bonds between schools of various regions from different States and of different cultural backgrounds.


This work has to start at the grass root level at the regions itself which brings out the importance of a regional AINACS Unit at each diocese or state. Group interactions between Principals, Managers, teachers and students will become the vehicle through which sharings and learnings will take place in each region.

Friends, each one of you are called upon to be agents to effect this bondedness in your regions. The regional unit will work in collaboration with the National Body.
