Photos from CCI/Canada’s 2011 Executive Leadership Conference: Moving Forward!

It’s the third day of the Executive Leadership Institute in Muskoka, and everyone is having a really great time. CCI conferences are always a great time to network and share with others. Plus there’s a lot to learn on how to move forward with your ministry this year.

I’ll leave this quick post with a few photos of our participants.

 

Here’s a shot of some conference participants listening to Jim Cantelon, founder of VISIONLEDD and host of 100 Huntley Street. I’m sure they’re learning a lot!

Wintertime news from CCI/Canada

November is almost half over already, and many of us are getting ready to deck the halls. How is your camp doing at the start of this winter season? What are some of the programs or activities you offer at your camp or conference center during the wintertime?

Speaking of wintertime, I wanted to tell you about the rules for next month’s video contest! I’ve really enjoyed watching all of the videos of your camps’ awesome summer programs, but now that the temperature is falling (at least here in Alberta) and some of us are starting to see snow, I’m really interested in what your camp looks like in the wintertime! I want to see what activities you offer, and whether you decorate for Christmas, and how your onsite staff deal with the chill and snow!

Our Winter Video Contest will run for the next three months (or until I change my mind!), so get out there with your camera, camp friends! As usual, videos can be sent to me at communicate@cci-canada.ca.

Now, November doesn’t just mean first snowfalls and and falling temperatures. It also means that the Executive Leadership Institute is upon us! We are so excited to see all of you on November 21st. We’ve got the whole conference packed with great stuff for you to grow as a camp leader.

If you’re unable to attend, keep an eye out for news about regional conferences and events in 2012, as well as our National Conference!

One more piece of news: CCI/Canada is gearing up to launch its brand new website. I hope you’ll keep your eyes peeled for it, because it’s going to be great. By this time next week, it should be totally up and running and ready for you to explore. We’ll keep you posted about how our new Members-Only Portal is going to work. We’re really excited about all of this, and we know you’ll all appreciate our swanky new site.

Well, camp friends, I hope you’re able to attend ELI next week! And if not, I hope you’re still finding ways to improve your ministry all the time.

Moving Forward: 2011 Executive Leadership Institute

The 2011 Executive Leadership Institute (East) is coming up quick, and I’ve got all the information you need to attend!

Many of you may have attended one of CCI/Canada’s Executive Leadership Institutes in the past — and if you have, you know that it’s an incredible time of learning, networking, and growing your camp’s potential. This year’s theme is Moving Forward. We’ve got excellent speakers lined up to inspire you to lead your camp in the most effective ministry.

Here’s everything you need to know to register:

When?
November 21-23, 2011

What is ELI?
ELI (Executive Leadership Institute) is CCI/Canada’a premier leadership training event of 2011. Join us for a two-and-a-half day leadership experience, packed with teaching and insight for personal growth, team enhancement, leadership training and decision making. How do you, in 2011, move your camp forward? What are the obstacles to overcome? How do you make sure everyone is “on the same page”?

Moving Forward – Who is the Leader? 
On Monday night, we welcome Jim Cantelon to speak to us about who we are and what issues in our lives may stand in the way of our camp moving forward.

Moving Forward – What is your Camp Culture?
Tuesday and Wednesday we will work with Ron denOtter, co-author of Building Healthy Organizations. Ron will help us discover patterns of thinking that may prevent our camps from moving forward. Be prepared to challenge your perceptions (or misconceptions) and increase your capacity as a leader.
