Catholic Leadership Summit and New Leaders Academy

The annual Catholic Leadership Summit and New Leaders Academy will be held at the Hilton Portland Downtown & The Duniway in Portland, Oregon, from October 24 to 28, 2020. The Catholic Leadership Summit provides a professional development framework for diocesan, system, and network leadership.

New Leaders Academy

Superintendents, assistant or associate superintendents, and directors in diocesan offices of Catholic school education with 0 – 3 years’ experience are strongly encouraged to register for the New Leaders Academy on Saturday, October 24 and Sunday morning, October 25.

The New Leaders Academy provides innovative, timely and relevant information and practices. 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.
