Catholic Leadership Summit and New Leaders Academy 2018

Registration is expected to open Summer 2018!

New Leaders Academy (October 20-21, 2018)
Catholic Leadership Summit (October 21-24, 2018)
Hyatt Regency Jacksonville Riverfront
Jacksonville, FL

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, leaders of religious congregation systems/networks of Catholic schools, and CHESCS members. The meeting begins on Sunday, October 21 and concludes on Wednesday, October 24, 2018. 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

New Leaders Academy

The Academy provides innovative, timely and relevant information and practices for superintendents, associate and assistant superintendents, and leaders of networks of Catholic schools. 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 breakout sessions, networking opportunities and resources.
