"A Coach is someone who tells you what you don't want to hear so that you can see what you don't want to see so that you can be what you've always wanted to be." - Tom Landry

2020 National Advancement Summer Institute for Catholic Schools

Recent times have taught us that our daily lives can change in an instant. We pray that you, your faculty, staff, administration, students, parents, alumni and friends are persevering through these tough times, remaining healthy and gaining strength by caring for each other.

As this Covid-19 pandemic ripples through every aspect of our lives, federal and state governments, as you know, continue to take action to protect us and to help stop the spread. It is no surprise that our schools around the country are closed.

Even so, we at Partners in Mission remain hopeful that, by summer, life will return to a "new normal." While we have delayed mailing our National Advancement Summer Institute for Catholic Schools invitations, at this point, we are planning still to hold our June conferences in Boston from June 21 to June 25. Both the Advancement Conference AND the Enrollment Management Conferences will have special emphasis on enrollment management and advancement initiatives within the context of this challenging public health crisis.

While we remain hopeful, we recognize that there isa possibility that the June Summer Institute may need to be re-scheduled. As such, please also make note of the July and August "re-schedule" dates, should we need to postpone this event.

Sunday, July 26 to Thursday, July 30, 2020 or Sunday, August 16 to August 20, 2020

Once we turn the corner, we will mail the conference brochure. Please consider attending this year's Partners in Mission June Summer Institute. It is more important than ever before to learn from one another and to lend support. Together, we are all stronger.

Our very best wishes to you for continued faith, hope and good health.

Larry, Chris, Tom and the Partners in Mission Team
