On June 2, 2004 our annual meeting will convene for the twentieth time. This year the Board of Trustees and their planning team along with the IT staff of the Diocese of Richmond will be the hosts in Williamsburg, Virginia.
A picnic dinner has been planned on Tuesday evening for everyone at tending this year’s conference. If you are bringing your family they will enjoy many of the activities that will be taking place during the picnic. This will be a time to renew old acquaintances or make new ones. A time to share what has taken place since last you met with friends from other dioceses. It promises to be a relaxing evening around the pool. The chefs assured us that the food will be delicious and very enjoyable.
The pre-conference seminar will be conducted by Mr. Rob Sheehan of the Academy of Leadership of the University of Maryland. Rob Sheehan has worked with non-profit organizations and has been the CEO of two non-profit organizations in the past. He brings to the seminarian understanding of the problems encountered in our area. He has provided insights to past participants who have attended his workshops. Under his direction the Academy of Leadership has grown in its offerings to participants.
Our Keynote Address will be presented by Bishop Richard E. Pates, auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis. Episcopal moderator for DISC
You will find the conference presentations relevant to the administrative and technical elements of your IT responsibilities at the diocese. A separate track is offered enabling a vendor or manufacturer to present the trends in their field of expertise.
The vendor exhibits have been expanded this year to include many of the major companies with offerings in the IT Field. We hope you will take advantage of the knowledge they wish to share with you during the conference.
This year’s outing will include dinner at the King’s Arms Tavern and you will be part of a guided tour and interactive presentation by the characters of the Colonial Williamsburg cast.
