Earlier this year, we launched the Conclave Sessions in Dallas. It was such a success that we have begun to schedule more of these. Our next Roundtable will be this Fall 2011 (October 26th & 27th) in the Windy City of Chicago. We’re pleased to announce that Kem Meyer of Granger and Josh Burns of Park will be joining us as well as several others. The discussions we will tackle will be powerful and provoking. If you’d like to be considered for the Chicago Roundtable, please apply here. We’ll review all submissions and notify you closer to the event if you’ve been selected.

Why A ‘Roundtable’?
We started this project to gather thought leaders, practitioners and church comm experts to leverage best practices and talk through challenges. Each of our Roundtables are filled with individuals from a wide variety of churches, many are growing and influential churches who are able to implement communication strategies. “As iron sharpens iron,” Proverbs says, “so one person sharpens another.” This is an opportunity to share with and learn from your peers in deep and substantial ways.

As a Conclave Member, you’ll receive:
Dinner at the Nightwood Restaurant
Lunch
A Disruptive Learning Event from a renowned author
Church Communication Key Findings and Best Practices report from the content generated at the Roundtable
Networking opportunities with some of the brightest minds in the church comm space
