"Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes."
Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes.” The hit song by the late Jimmy Buffett provides such an appropriate theme for this year’s ISPD Development School. Today, there are many changes and innovations taking place in this world of development–advancement, enrollment management, and stewardship (the Operational Vitality domain). Making sure your “latitude” (freedom to choose the best direction), and your “attitude” (receptiveness to new ideas, best practices, and innovative vision) are in synch can mean the difference between prevailing or just surviving. In celebration of ISPD’s 35th anniversary in June 2024, this year’s Development School has two major components: Day 1 for Catholic Elementary School Principals and Administrators and Days 2-3 for all principals, presidents, pastors, superintendents, associate superintendents, development/advancement directors, board members, enrollment management/admissions directors, faculty/staff, and more.
