Leadership Training Development (LTD) 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



Attention all Council Membership Committees: March is the perfect month to promote CCW membership because there are two celebrations which can attract attention to our organization.

March 4th marks the 98th Anniversary of the founding of the National Council of Catholic Women.  Ninety-eight years of prayer and service to celebrate in creative and attention-getting ways!

  • Print out a list of 98 ways that your Council has served the parish and pass them out or “stuff” the bulletin.
  • Bake a sheet cake with 98 candles for Coffee And after each mass that weekend.
  • Create a photo montage with 98 images of your members through the years. (Leave room to add 99 and 100 to get multiple years use from this effort!)

March 13th marks the Anniversary of Pope Francis’ election as Pope. Create a Buzz!

  • Hang a banner announcing CCW honoring the Pope’s anniversary.
  • Make a collage…invite parishioners to bring pictures of Pope Francis from Catholic magazines or printed off the internet to add to the collage. Take a photo and send it to the Holy Father.
  • Set up a CCW Selfies Table for women and families to take selfies with Flat Francis. Have NCCW scarves available to wear!
