experience a uniquely interactive and guided process
to expand your ministry
by learning to build partnerships within diocesan structures.

Join GP Catholic Services for a special dinner at ICSC.

Championing Your Role in the Catholic Church

A discourse and dinner designed especially for Diocesan Directors of Development, presented by GP Catholic Services.

7 p.m. | Monday, September 18

Saltyard | 1820 Peachtree Road Northwest | Atlanta, GA 30309

One significant dimension of your effectiveness is your ability to influence colleagues and superiors. The ability to inspire these constituencies can enable you to be more successful in your ministry, expand your budget in a manner that leads to hiring additional development officers, and ensure you are part of the strategic discussions that occur within the diocese.

During the ICSC Annual Conference, GP Catholic Services will host a unique dinner that is a time for fellowship, an opportunity to learn best practices when it comes to elevating your avocation, and a chance to share ideas with your peers.

The dinner and guided discussion will be "served" in four parts:

> Bite-sized starters and introductions

> Fruitful partnerships: Using storytelling to build consensus

> An entree to collaboration: Partnering with offices from Finance to Evangelization

> How sweet it is: Partnerships sustained through mutual commitment
