More than 80 leaders attended the National Leadership Roundtable on Church Management’s Regional Roundtable—Philadelphia on September 30, 2013, at the Union League Club in Philadelphia.
Regional Roundtable participants engaged in dialogue about the Leadership Roundtable’s vision, with a panel presentation from the group’s newly installed chairman, Lt. Gen. (Ret.) James Dubik, and Executive Director Kerry Robinson. Small workgroup sessions allowed for greater exchange of ideas among participants. Geoff Boisi, the founding chair of the Leadership Roundtable, offered a brief update on the organization’s engagement with the Church over the past 9 years as they prepare to celebrate a decade of service beginning at the 2014 Annual Meeting. The final session of the day was a panel focusing on the sustainability of Catholic schools co-hosted by the Philanthropy Roundtable. Representatives from the Boston and Philadelphia archdioceses shared innovative approaches to planning and strategic development. That evening, Mr. Boisi was honored with the 2013 Leadership Roundtable Best Practices Award for his extraordinary investment in the Catholic Church.
