Leadership, Training, and Development (LTD): A Council Enrichment Program

Need training, don't know how to recruit members, wondering how you can gain your Spiritual Advisor's support, or maybe you think your image could be better? The LTD team can assist with these issues and countless others. The team offers one or two day training sessions for your members. We will ask your members to fill out an anonymous survey and the leadership will answer an inquiry about their group. These survey tools will assist in customizing your Leadership Training Development sessions to address your challenges, educate and empower your council members and leaders. Training exercises, group discussions, and handouts are included to enhance your training day.

Here is a sampling of the more than 50 topics from which you can choose for your training:

  • Officer Training

  • Leadership Succession

  • Job Descriptions

  • Mentoring

  • Action Plans

  • Volunteer Management

  • Life Cycle of Your Group

  • Change

  • Image

  • Effective Committees

An Historic Moment

By Susie Harting, LTD Trainer

100 Years old! The National Council of Catholic Women lives on after 100 years. How is your affiliation celebrating? Make plans now to attend the NCCW convention in Arlington, Va. August 2020. Each member should be proud to be a member and excited to celebrate this milestone. Mark your calendar for March 2020 to have a parish wide celebration to welcome all women of the parish to join NCCW.

Looking back over the years and attending functions hosted by NCCW such as NCCW General Assembly, NCCW Conventions and LTD training, March for Life, and WUCWO General Assembly it is an honor to be a part of such a remarkable national organization.

At some of these functions, 2000 NCCW members were in attendance. Let’s get excited and join in on the celebration of Council. March 4, 2020 marks 100 years of women empowering and mentoring all Catholic women in leadership, spirituality and service to the Church and society around the world.

After being a member for 35 years, it is exciting to see the many opportunities Council has to help chil-dren and women by having clean water, education on legislative issues and resources to gain knowledge of how to meet the needs of our sisters around the world.

Take this time in the history of the NCCW to mentor other women to be a part of this fabulous organization. Spread the word, it is not a secret. Ask your friend at Mass to come to this celebration and introduce Council to anyone that is not a current member. Face to face, announcements, invitation and a follow up with a phone call are ways to communicate.

As members of NCCW we must continue to educate all on the signs of Human Trafficking and Domestic Violence. We know that human trafficking and domestic violence will touch people from all sectors of society, whether rich or poor. Speakers are available to visit your area regarding this serious and pervasive issue.

Let us give thanks to God for all the many blessings he has bestowed on us during this Thanksgiving.
