Catholic Leadership Summit and The Academy 2017

The Academy (October 21-22, 2017)
Catholic Leadership Summit (October 22-25, 2017)
Phoenix Marriott Tempe at The Buttes
Tempe, Arizona

The NCEA Catholic Leadership Summit is open to all NCEA members who are arch/diocesan superintendents, assistant or associate superintendents, directors of diocesan level offices of Catholic school education, and CHESCS members. The meeting begins on Sunday, October 22 and concludes on Wednesday, October 25, 2017. In addition to outstanding keynote and general sessions, and opportunities for leaders to network with each other, we are offering sessions in four leadership tracks at the Catholic Leadership Summit. The four tracks are:

  • Catholic Identity
  • Academic Excellence
  • Leadership & Governance
  • Operational Vitality

The Academy

The Academy provides innovative, timely and relevant information and practices for superintendents, associate superintendents, and assistant superintendents in Catholic education.  While the Academy focuses primarily on new or nearly new (arch)diocesan leaders, it is also an excellent professional development opportunity for aspiring superintendents who are currently employed at the (arch)diocesan level and seasoned veterans seeking a refresher. This two-day event includes general and break out sessions, networking opportunities and resources.
